California has recently overturned Proposition 8, a vote in which people decided to ban gay marriage in the state. The judge in the case decided that the ban was unconstitutional. He said that the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees equal protection for all citizens under the law, including gay people. However, gay marriage is still banned in California until passed through other courts in the state.

Gay Marriage: a man who marries a man or a woman who marries a woman.
