…and I just figured out why. This week Prop8 will be back in the court, in fact it will be in front of the same California court that legalized it a year ago. This time the state Supreme Court will be taking up an appeal of Proposition 8 (or Prop 8ate) which is the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage. The court will have a final say again and I’m hoping it’s going to be the outcome that will allow R and I to still be recognized as a married couple.
I never thought I would have felt this emotional and strong about marriage. I always said, “I don’t need marriage to show my love for R”. My feelings have changed now to questioning why my life partnership should be recognized any different than someone else’s, aka straights. I’m a crabass and it’s because I’m afraid my marriage will be null and void based on the outcome of the court. This week my plans are to:
Clean my camera to cover the Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday night.
Listen to the court proceedings on Thursday.
Then wait the long, could be up to 90 days, for the court’s decision concerning a very important part of my life.
Crap! 90 CRABASS days.
I better stock up on the beer and tequila.
