And still Prop 8 is going to go away because the proponents of Prop 8 don't have Article 3 standing to defended it at the federal level.
I guess Gays and Lesbians will be able to start getting married in July. Good for them.
Congratulations to all of the soon to be married couples.

Wednesday Mar 27 12 JUSTICE ALITO: You want us to assess the
13 effects of same-sex marriage, the potential effects
14 on -- of same-sex marriage, the potential -- the effects
15 of Proposition 8. But what is your response to the
16 argument which has already been mentioned about the need
17 to be cautious in light of the newness of the -- the
18 concept of -- of same-sex marriage.
19 The one thing that the parties in this case
20 seem to agree on is that marriage is very important.
21 It's thought to be a fundamental building block of
22 society and its preservation essential for the
23 preservation of society. Traditional marriage has been
24 around for thousands of years. Same-sex marriage is
25 very new. I think it was first adopted in The
Official - Subject to Final Review
Alderson Reporting Company
1 Netherlands in 2000. So there isn't a lot of data about
2 its effect. And it may turn out to be a -- a good
3 thing; it may turn out not to be a good thing, as the
4 supporters of Proposition 8 apparently believe.
5 But you want us to step in and render a
6 decision based on an assessment of the effects of this
7 institution which is newer than cell phones or the
8 Internet? I mean we -- we are not -- we do not have the
9 ability to see the future.
10 On a question like that, of such fundamental
11 importance, why should it not be left for the people,
12 either acting through initiatives and referendums or
13 through their elected public officials? <quoted text>I also agree.
Are you married?

<quoted text>I have no problem with the marriage laws, so it does not matter.
If Prop 8 were likely to lose, then the opponents would be all over here.
I believe Mr. Wilde_ that Prop 8 will be gone by June.
