Skip to comments.California governor signs bill replacing words 'husband' and 'wife' in state law
Posted on 07/07/2014 3:57:13 PM PDT by Innovative
The terms husband and wife have been deleted from Californias marriage law under a bill signed into law Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown.
The terms will be replaced with spouse to accommodate same-sex marriage, which became legal in the state last year after the Supreme Court struck down a voter-approved ban on it.
SB1306, the bill signed Monday by Brown, takes effect Jan. 1 and reflects the legality of gay marriage after a decade of litigation. The law also removes limits on recognizing same-sex marriages performed out of state.

Well, that’ll make plural marriage a bit easier to handle, eh?
Pretty soon it will be “discriminatory” to use the term “husband” or “wife”.
I hate to say it
Our Hippie guru governor is really 5150 crazy
Governor Moonbeam is an enemy of the nation. May the Lord strike him down.
Soon to be further corrected as “pillar of salt”.
Yep. Pretty soon they will be dragging people to court for it,
From now on they will be known as "Pitchers" and "Catchers".
They kept saying fag-marriage wouldn’t ‘affect’ real marriage. Yet, here is a state no longer acknowledging or accepting the reality of “husband” and “wife.” Heck, and before long, it will undoubtedly be deemed un-PC to even utilize such words, and you’ll get fired from a job for even daring to categorize people thusly.
America continues its full and complete descent into total and utterly depraved madness.
I wish the Catholic Church (and any others interested) would simply marry people without government involvement. A black co-worker years ago described her pastor asking how many couples were living in sin; when several raised their hands, he called them all to the front and pronounced them married.
Easy enough; they felt “cleansed” and no longer sinful, and their pastor saw no reason to involve Uncle Sam. The legal protections they gave up are today obstacles to many young men marrying anyway...
People will search state law just to find the new Bizarre wording
Unfortunately, that lets the leftist churches have their gay marriage and polygamous marriages and child-adult marriages and marriages to trees and bridges and stuff.
Does that mean that religious ceremonies using the “husband” and “wife” terminology will not be recognized by the State of California?
“Unfortunately, that lets the leftist churches have their gay marriage and polygamous marriages and child-adult marriages and marriages to trees and bridges and stuff.”
They are already doing that (with or without government approval); we should also completely disregard Caesar’s intrusion into our faith.
Replacing “husband” and “wife” with one noun—spouse. How about the non-sexual and therefore PC “Top” and “Bottom”? /S
which became legal in the state last year after the Supreme Court struck down a voter-approved ban on it.
It’s too bad even Fox news is peddling this nonsense. All the Supremes did is to let stand the ruling by a district judge. They sidestepped the issue by saying that the Prop8 proponents did not have standing to defend the case.
The district court ruling only applies to the two homos that sued and maybe in their home district. It does not apply statewide but Moonbeam and Kamala Harris the attorney general illegally pressured county clerks all over the state to issue marriage certificates to homosexuals.
You are correct, but those details got lost when the ruling was announced. Brown and Harris decided it meant that homosexual marriage must be allowed for everyone. Nobody challenged that interpretation, so homosexual marriage Continues in California.
“Spouses of indeterminate number, age, child or of age of consent, species, living or dead and of various sex and gender assignment contemporaneously self identified except where medical information is private.”
That should work for a California usage.
So glad our jobs sent us out of this loony bin...
California=Lost cause, politically.
Do you XY chromosomes #1 take XY chromosomes #2 to be your lawfully, wedded spouse?
I now pronounce you spouse and spouse....
George Orwell’s term ‘newspeak’ has nothing on this modern bunch of progs.
So if you are a husband or a wife living in California your Government just told you to piss off........... you do not matter..
so will calipornia recognize carry permits?
Or, at least voting them in to office.
And they outnumber us by a LOT.
We voted him out in ‘82, but he keeps coming back, like a zombie.
Well, let me clarify...we voted out his “ilk”...Tom Bradley was his anointed successor, and we put in Deukmejian, much to the surprise of the establishment.
I don’t think that the Roman Catholic or Eastern Orthodox churches will rewrite their Sacraments.
The time will come that the titles “father” and “mother” will be banned when describing a same-sex relationship.
And then the title of “Father” in the Lord’s Prayer and “Mother” in the Hail Mary will be thought of being sexist and the Supremes will rule that it be removed from all public prayer including prayer in a building open to the public i.e. any church and that it only be used in describing sperm donors and receceivers.
And then the end will come.
want to know how gay marriage negatively affects me?
i am not a husband, but a genderless spouse.
fu gaystapo thugs.
Its official there is no longer such a thing as marriage in California law.
We should always asking them about their husband(if their female) or their wife(if their male) and never acknowledged their sodomite dilutions.
If ever a woman claims to have a wife she should be treated as if she misspoke and if she makes it clear that she did not, then she should be treated as she is a bit nuts. A Good christian would tell such a woman that her sodomite behavior is sinful and should be resisted. That their supposed union founded in sin should not be respected.
The same should be said and done of a man in reverse.
yup. just be ready to defend yourself, though.
Californians are good comrades.
He is like cockroach he always come back LOL!
Yeah he is Cali version of cockroach
The “will of the people” in a representative republic is represented via the legislature. California voters get the laws they deserve because of the politicians they elect.
Didn’t Brother Romney do the same thing in Massachusetts? Seems crass of us to be critical of a liberal doing what a Republican presidential nominee did in the past...
“Didnt Brother Romney do the same thing in Massachusetts?”
I don’t think so — you better post a reference to substantiate your accusation.
In searching I found just the opposite:
“Summary: Mitt Romney on Same-Sex Marriage
Marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
Supports a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a man and a woman.
In favor of recognizing domestic partnerships that include the opportunity for shared health benefits and rights of survivorship.
Every child deserves a father and a mother.”
I’m so sorry to disappoint you, but yes, Romney was governor at the time in Massachusetts, and he didn’t take the courageous course of saying ‘Well, guess we are out of the marriage business, all marriages in the state of Massachusetts are now considered unconstitutional under current law.’ Yes, he played a whole lot of games to pander to the conservatives, such as enforcing laws (for a very short time) that forbid marriage licenses if the marriage would be void in the resident state.
But hey, let’s take the words from those who support Romney and wish to absolutely forget that he was governor of the first state to permit homosexuals calling themselves married.
One of a billion references of the time: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/25/us/romney-won-t-let-gay-outsiders-wed-in-massachusetts.html
You are completely mischaracterizing it. The link you gave says that he won’t let gay out of staters marry in MA.
It appears that he had no power to stop it, but he was most definitely not in favor of it.
IF you criticize someone for something they actually did is one thing, but when you are FALSELY accusing someone just because you don’t like him and want to spread FALSE rumors it reflects on you.
I found an article which gives the whole story — the courts ruled in favor of gay marriage in MA. And Romney is not like Obama who ignores the courts and thinks he can do anything unilaterally.
“The state’s highest court ruled that gays had the legal right to marry, thrusting the state into the forefront of the same-sex marriage debate.”
The state supreme court did not re-write law. They offered the 'nuclear' option of declaring all marriages to be unconstitutional, and Romney caved. Big shock there.
Stick to the biblical term sodomite.
But your right, what they do is sick, just as their unnatural acts have the tendency to make each-other needlessly sick.
In any event it is clear that the State of California has left the business of what we could call marriage.
If your a Californian there is still such a thing as the original concept of marriage. Believe it or not the State has not long been a party.
Californian Churches need to get back into practicing Christian marriage again. Where the State of California has left their Church must assume soul practical ownership again.
Unfortunately not many churches are practising Christianity these days
