Equality California, one of the largest gay rights groups in California, recently revealed that it would hold-off on pushing for a same sex marriage amendment until 2012. The group was one of the main forces leading the charge to oppose Proposition 8, of which California voters passed to outlaw same sex marriages in California. The group has indicated its hopes to raise enough money over the next four years to launch a successful campaign to amend the constitution.
The issue of same sex marriage has been a highly controversial topic this decade throughout the United States, and more importantly in California. California voters have been asked to vote on the issue twice in the last nine years. Both times, the voters said no to same sex marriages. However, it is clearly evident that proponents of same sex marriages such as Equality California will continue to fight for an amendment to allow same sex marriages in California.
It will definitely be interesting to see how the same sex marriage battle plays out over the next four years. How this issue is ultimately determined will greatly affect child custody, alimony and other key family law issues for existing and future same sex marriages.
