And the beat goes on

The voices are getting louder. The crowds are getting larger. The movement is growing.

It’s been two weeks since Proposition 8 passed with a 52 percent majority. The motion — which banned same-sex marriages in California — was a controversial issue throughout the campaign.

Now, with its passage, couples who felt vindicated when on May 15 the state’s Supreme Court declared that a California law defining marriage as being between a man and a woman violated the state Constitution are now wondering if their desire to one day marry the person they love is again being denied. And the thousands of couples who wed over the past five months are wondering if their unions will remain valid.
