There are 1 comment on the story from Jun 16, 2008, titled California's big day for love, law . In it, reports that:

LOS ANGELES - Under the gilded dome of San Francisco City Hall, Stuart Gaffney and John Lewis will be wearing tuxedos and tying the knot this week as California becomes the nation's second state allowing same-sex marriages. "After 21 years together, we're finally going to be able to be married," said Lewis, a 49-year-old lawyer who was born in Evanston, Ill., where his father and brother live. "I think it's going to be a momentous, absolute joy." The marriage on Tuesday will cap a legal odyssey that began in 2004 when San Francisco's attempt to marry the two men and other same-sex couples was voided by California's Supreme Court on the narrow point that the city exceeded its authority. But last month the two companions, along with nine lesbian and four other gay couples, convinced the same court they had a constitutional right to wed.
