Today is a historical day! The Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriages. I’m sure you guys have been hearing about it all over the news, but I just wanted to give you guys a summary of the ruling and what it means to us. Here are some key points:
1) same-sex marriage will begin towards the end of July
2) gay marriage does not apply statewide
3) for the 18,000 gay couples married in California of 2008, the government must treat legally same-sex couples the same as heterosexual couples in terms of benefits.
4) it takes 25 days from the ruling to be final, but it could be faster.
