No it is law, recognized on both the state and federal level. That is a fact.
Your opinion carries no weight.
The fact that SS relationships are a mating behavior defect is no opinion.

SS relationships are literally 'unmarriage'.

There is no "mating behavior" stipulated on a marriage license

Your opinions donít matter.

There is a fact however, that same sex couples are legally married and recognized on the state and federal level, recognized exactly the same as any other marriage.

Of reality has no bearing on s bad ruling, why does it bother homosexuals so much when I point reality out?
You donít understand reality.

There is a fact however that you cannot avoid. Same sex marriages are the same under California and federal law as marriage, not treated or viewed any differently than any other marriage.

Sorry but I'd have to say when Minnesota passed their marriage equality law that kind of shot this decision in the foot and made it moot. Care to try again?
The point is there are numerous court cases proving the link between marriage and procreation, of marriage as the expected societal setting for procreation. Minnesota passed a law ending marriage conjugality, not "marriage equality".

Wrong
Not according to that court.
Many marriages do not involve procreation and they are just as married as those that do, no difference under US law.
Marriage itself, not individual marriages, but u know this.
And your little religious book is not US law
Same Sex Marriage is recognized legally on the state and federal level in California and in a growing number of states
Yet that "....little religious book...."was cited by a judge in a legal decision. Thirty plus states say conjugal marriage only.
You lost
The battle is still being fought.

Oh yes, there are all kinds of attempts to derail justice, they will continue to fail.

Currently same sex couples are being married every day in our state and many other states and nations, with the same rights and protections and the same recognitions as any other marriage.

That will continue

and more state are preparing to have their bans overturned as well, you are on a sinking ship.

That may be your opinion, but your opinions don't get to define my marriage. That is the reality of which you so oft attempt to speak.
