Also, you haven't respond to my comment about contracts having the force of law. No individual can declare something has the force of law because an individual cannot use that force. Only government can give something the force of law, which means marriage as a legal institution is not a matter of individual rights. It is something entirely within the scope of state's rights. As such the federal government has no place in deciding what should be legally recognized as a marriage by a state and what shouldn't.

The CA state constitution was legally amended. Unfortunately, the amended version violates the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Hence, the Federal court case...
Next step is the Fed appellate court, then SCOTUS.
