BREAKING: Gay and lesbian couples begin marrying in California

Gay and lesbian couples are now able to marry in California.

Today, the Ninth Circuit lifted its stay on the historic federal court decision that ruled Prop. 8 unconstitutional.

After over 12 years together our plaintiffs, Kris Perry & Sandy Stier, will be first couple to get married in California since the passage of Proposition 8.

For Kris and Sandy, and gay and lesbian couples like them, this day is a long time coming. It’s a day when they can finally look into each other’s eyes and know that their love is equal in the eyes of the law.

If you are planning to get married, check out our list of frequently asked questions and share your love story with us.

Today, we are indeed more American.
