    All the ones that opposite sex, legally married couples get simply by signing a single contract. (though, same sex marriages can't be performed there until the stay is lifted)

    I am completely ignoring the discrimination argument altogether. What I am saying is that it does not apply. The government and the people often make laws that allow some things and prevent others.

    Simple. it has been the precedent of the federal government that marriage is a fundamental civil right. As such, for California to intrude and deny that right to same sex couples, it must provide stict scrutiny for why it has done so. California failed to provide decent rational as to why same sex couples should be denied the right to marry, and thus the judge found that same sex couples were denied due process of law.

    Yes they "dsicriminate", that's the point I was making.

    No. Prop 8 halted the right of gays to marry. It was passed in response to local ordinances in places like San Fran.
