Order in the (way we proceed to) court
Planning to marry in California then immediately return to your home state and get litigious? Well not so fast, lawsuit-craving gays. For a coalition of national LGBT groups is encouraging CA-bound 'mos to show some judicial self-restraint:
Well there goes our lifelong dream of appearing on Judge Judy. ::sigh::

I think I would have to agree. Just live it up as a married couple VERY OPENLY, and complain about any unequal treatment (except in federal laws of course). Please keep it all positive and Happy this summer....until we in Cali get the d*** vote over with in November at least!
Also you will have much more substantial help in the future as this little article from 365 says.:
New York City) The American Civil Liberties Union announced by far the largest fundraising campaign in its 88-year history this week, eying a dramatic expansion of its work on social justice issues in relatively conservative states such as Texas and Florida.
The campaign's goal is $335 million, with $258 million already raised through behind-the-scenes solicitations over the past year, ACLU executive director Anthony Romero said.
Major donors include billionaire financier George Soros, who gave $12 million through his Open Society Institute.
"The purpose is to build a civil liberties infrastructure in the middle of the country - where battleground states are often under-resourced and our efforts are most needed," Romero said.
Romero said the ACLU envisions more than doubling the staffs of its Texas and Florida operations, and its full-time work force nationwide - including its headquarters and state affiliates - would increase from roughly 800 to about 1,000. Numerous new satellite offices would be opened.
"We're going to build these offices into vibrant, muscular civil liberties machines, in places where our issues matter most," he said. "We've done great work in those states, but we've always been the David to the government's Goliath."
So you will have much more muscle when it is time. Look at that $$$$$# GREAT!
Yep I am a member.

I'm really pleased about the expansion of the ACLU. Another favorite is Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. I'm a member of both.
