"Marriage is a confirmation of the importance of love and commitment in a healthy society. It is a fundamental right to which all people are entitled and I am proud that I can officiate the eternal unions of these Oakland couples. Our city is one of the most diverse cities in the country and we join in the celebration of this historic day of human rights for all people."

-- Mayor Ron Dellums of Oakland California, who presided over some of the first same-sex marriages in Alameda County on Monday.
