“This is the first day of the rest of our lives together, said Kristin Perry, who with her fiancée, Sandy Stier, filed the lawsuit against Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that outlawed same-sex marriage in California in 2008. To the south of the state, Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, a second couple who were plaintiffs in the case as well, wed at City Hall in Los Angeles.

“You are just as in love today as you were when you met 12 years ago,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who conducted the ceremony, told the two men. Officiating this specially convened marriage ceremony between one of the 4 plaintiffs in the milestone case, Mayor Villaraigosa clearly making a point to be involved in the occasion on this his last day in office. The two California marriages capped a historic week for gay rights in the United States. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court issued two key rulings – one that extended federal benefits to married gay couples and another that allowed a federal court’s order striking down the California marriage ban to stand.
Justice Anthony Kennedy said that “the act wrote inequality into federal law and violated the Fifth Amendment’s protection of equal liberty.” and,
“DOMA’s principal effect is to identify a subset of state-sanctioned marriages and make them unequal,” he wrote.
California now becomes the 13th state to allow same-sex marriage; about 30 percent of Americans now live in jurisdictions where it is legal. Until last year, when four states voted in favor of same-sex marriage at the ballot box, it had failed almost every time it was put on a ballot. The last year has brought forth tremendous strides in how the American people perceive gay culture. This seems to be a positive omen for how the quickness of the technology that we are now so immersed, might one day help to drive other issues for social change. Standing as an obstruction in the pathway of love is not only illogical, it’s downright wrong. Love has found a way despite the attempted derailment. Now that this wrong has finally been righted perhaps this is a sign that logic is finally prevailing.
