The language of the measure does not seem to suggest revoking marriages that take place between June and November, legal experts say. But such a move would depend on the courts' interpretation of the proposed amendment.What the article does not include is the actual text of the Nov. ballot measure:
Experts say that if the measure passes, the state may choose to recognize the marriages, creating a pocket of married same-sex couples.
Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.So how do they find legal experts to say that this requires recognizing same-sex marriages? If the measure passes, the plain language says that no same-sex marriages can be recognized in California.
No California same-sex couples will be inconvenenced, no matter what happens. They can always register as domestic partners, and still be effectively married even if the ballot measure passes.
