Hooray for Gay Couples in California
California just became the second state, after Massachusetts to allow same sex marriage. Thanks to MSNBC for the lesbian couple pictured on the left. The two, both in their eighties had a special marriage ceremony at city hall in San Fransisco today. They were the first same sex couple to "jump the broom" after California's supreme court made gay marriage legal. A handful of county clerks in California extended their hours to hand out marriage licenses. Many couples married immediately after receiving their licenses. It's kind of crazy and very unfair that the couple pictured above (and others who have been together for decades) had to wait this long to make their love official.
