SACRAMENTO, California: As expected, the California Supreme Court today upheld last year's Proposition 8, which prohibits same sex marriage in the state. The court also ruled that those couples married before the election can remain married, unaffected by the new law. The court voted 6-1 in support of Proposition 8 and unanimously voted to maintain existing marriages.[1]
