"Of Course We Do"



There was a misstatement in the story “Of Course We Do” from last week’s issue. It stated that if The California Marriage Protection Act, a constitutional amendment on the November ballot, passes, the same-sex marriages that happen in the weeks and months to come will become void. In fact, there is no clause written in the initiative that specifically addresses what will happen to marriages that occur before the act is passed. The future legal standings of such marriages, if the act passes, are currently unknown. In addition, the article did not make clear that the recent California Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage did not alleviate the discrimination such couples face under federal law. The Journalregrets the error.
