Why stop at that, how about marrying animals, marrying a sibling... Very sad day when the judges decide to be legislatures, let the people vote on it at least, since we'll be paying for it.

Unfortantly the people voted to take a section of our society and tell them they were not worthy enough to have the same rights as everyone else. That action violates existing laws that uphold every one shall be considered an equal in the eyes of the law. When this happens it is the duty of the courts to intervene, and they have done so properly.

Traditionalists might explore the history of marriage to understand all its accepted variations. Even Puritan colonialists refused to have ministers involved in marriage cermonies; these "Founding Fathers" believed marriage to be a secular institution.
Things change; get on board.
