The gay marriage is legal in California (May 15, 2008)

The California Supreme Court overturned a law that prevented the marriage of homosexual couples, which he described as unconstitutional. The highest court of that state of the United States found that "the right to establish a family relationship" applies to all Californians regardless of their sexual orientation.

With a vote of 4 to 3, a panel of seven judges ruled that the status of "domestic union" gives certain rights to gays. However, failure to recognize marriage violates the constitutional right of homosexuals "to have the same protection under the law guaranteed by the California Constitution."

Second State The ruling establishes the legal framework so that California will become, after Massachusetts, the second state that recognizes marriage for gay couples. The decision creates the legal framework so that California is the 2 nd state to recognize gay marriage. In other states like New Jersey and Vermont laws exist to ensure that the gay rights community similar to those of heterosexuals but not constituting a marriage. Several events also are planned in Castro, the gay neighborhood of San Francisco.

However, conservatives and religious groups said they will undertake legal measures to prevent gay marriages become a reality and continue with a campaign to collect one million signatures. (It is the people who have nothing more important than do in their vacuum life).

The state governor, Arnold Shwarzenegger, who twice vetoed legislation recognizing gay rights to marriage, said in a statement that it will respect the court's decision.
