In 2009, California passed the California Protection of Marriage Amendment, or Prop 8. Proposition 8 bravely protected the institution of traditional marriage by making sure that gay people could not participate in it.
I loved Proposition 8, but felt it did not go far enough. So fresh from the office of our legal counsel, I present the 2010 California Protection of Marriage Act.
SECTION 1. Title. This act shall be known as the 2010 California Marriage Protection Act.
No party to any marriage shall be restored to the state of an unmarried person during the lifetime of the other party unless the marriage is void or voidable, as set forth in Part 2 of Division 6 of the Family Code.
