ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Supreme Court has ruled against the ban on same-sex marriage in California. The court overturns two state laws that limit marriage to the union between a man and a woman and states that the term "right to marry" extends to same-sex couples. Pro-family groups were against the decision and support a proposal that may amend the state's Constitution to ban the same-sex marriages. California is the second state after Massachusetts to allow same-sex marriage.
