The complete text (pdf) of Proposition 8:
Prop 8 changes the Constitution, while Prop 22 only changed the Family Code. Much more importantly, Prop 8 has the word "thereto" in it. I think that means they hired more expensive lawyers in the intervening 8 years? Anyway, what was I saying? Right, so it's been a year since this court decision, but same-sex couples still can't actually get married here, because the Proposition 8 proponents are appealing the decision, so there's a stay on the decision. And, the court isn't actually considering their appeal yet because first they need to figure out whether the proponents even have standing to appeal. In other words: It's gonna be a while.
