State Senate approves same-sex marriage bill

SACRAMENTO – The state Senate became the first legislative chamber in the nation to pass a measure that would legalize same-sex marriage, setting up a showdown next week in the Assembly, which rejected the proposal just three months ago.

Gay-rights activists hailed the action as a landmark victory in their struggle for equal rights.

"It's a significant day. It's a historic occasion," said Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, the author of the legislation.

But Leno also said, "It's just the beginning."

For the bill to become law, it must pass in the Assembly – which rejected the measure in three separate votes in June – and have the governor's signature.

By all means, let gays marry...why should they be any less miserable than the rest of us? On the other hands, gay divorces would probably be the nightmare of any number of judges...two screaming bitches in the courtroom at the same time?...not that there's anything wrong with that...as you can tell, I have even less sympathy for lawyers...
