What will happen to existing same sex marriages?
- Keep existing marriages valid (Volokh doubts this will happen)
- Automatically convert them to domestic partnerships
- Invalidate them
- The legislature intervenes and passes a law that converts them to domestic partnerships
I'm very sad that this is happening. I spent some time tonight at our church discussing this result with people. I think if more people heard stories from gay people about what it felt like to have 52% of your fellow Californians tell you your marriage was invalid, more people would have voted against Proposition 8.
