Gay Marriage Season

Is it just a coincidence that the California State Supreme Court finalized its ruling such that the opening day of Gay Marriage Season in California just happens to be the week before Pride Week in San Francisco?

I mean, if I were gay and in a long-term relationship, I’d get married during pride week.

I wonder how many whirlwind Pride Week romances will turn into marriages next week.

Economists expect California to experience a Boomlet from gay marriage season, which will last at least until November when a ballot measure could once again render it illegal. Fortunately the ballot measure isn’t written retroactively, so any same-sex weddings between now and then will stay on the books. Oh, and you don’t need to be a resident of California to get married here. The state expects tourism to go up.

That’s one thing I’ve never understood about same-sex marriage opposition. You’d think the multi-billion dollar wedding industry would have a better lobby and be pushing for legalization. Think of all the money they’re not making. And that’s not even mentioning earning potential of same-sex divorce.

  1. June is gay pride month across the country. Marriage is a basic civil right that should be attainable by all Americans if they choose.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
