The “I do” flip-flop

1977 – California defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

2004 – Thousands of gays marry in San Francisco.

2005 – San Francisco Superior Court rules the 1977 law invalid.

2006 – First District Court of Appeals overturns 2005 ruling.

So… the couples in question said “I do”, but they didn’t.

When they couldn’t get married, they did.

Then some could get married, now others can’t.

Do I have that about right?

If breakups were involved, did alimony become palimony?

Who gets the car, and who got the house?

Who gets to sort that all out?

I’ve heard others refer to gays as ‘gender confused’.

Well now the courts have me confused too.

Can they… can’t they…

Will they… won’t they…

Is the whole thing really that big a deal?
