Marital advice: Proceed as if Prop. 8 never existed

by Jeremy Hooper

Will California marriages become invalidated if the amendment should pass? And does fear of this annoying possibility mean you should hold off on tying the proverbial knot? Well the California Ripple Effect blog says, "No way, San Jose!" They think you should go get married because (a) it puts a human face on the issue, and (b) gay rights opponents are gonna lose at the polls anyway. Go check out their thoughts:

What if they take it all away? [CA Ripple Effect]

Unless, of course, you're single with no marital prospects, in which case you might wanna cool your "i do"-bound jets. After all, when taking righteous political stands wherein taking on another person's last name is up for discussion, you don't want your hesitancy based primarily in the fact that you can't even remember their last name.

So me and my man were married Day One in Massachusetts. We had a ceremony here in New York two days later. And we had a reception with our families on the west coast that couldn't make it out here. We will get married in California this fall too. Why? Because every time I look into his eyes in front of God, the county clerk, or the kids playing pickup bball at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, and make a commitment to him, the liars lose! If I have to get married to him two dozen times to make it legal, I'll do it!

JH I'm sure you covered this somewhere, but I'm conviced that the only reason the "fundamentalists" are against gay people getting married is sex. No sex unless or until you're married - and if we're married then all bets are off! And just to make it extra offensive to the "religious" right, we're going to Folsom Street Fair after the wedding for some sexy demonstrations. Because you know, married adults can have sex however they damn well please!
