Yesterday evening the 9th Circuit Court ordered to leave the stay on Prop 8 in place pending appeal. The good news, as my wife the attorney and optimist tells me, is that the Court has picked up the pace on hearing the appeal which is now scheduled for the week of December 6th and if the three judges find that proponents of Prop 8 do not have legal standing, the case ends right then and there and couples can have a December wedding.
If, however, they decide that these folks do have standing, the case will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and then no one really knows when same-sex couples will be able to legally marry in California again.
In the meantime, if you can't wait to marry there are now five other states and the District of Columbia where you can say "I do" and ten other countries as well as Mexico City. Just make sure you read the residency and dissolution requirements.
