California Strikes 'Husband' And 'Wife' From State Law

California voters approved Prop 22 in 2000 blocking gay marriage. The vote was struck down by California's Supreme Court in 2008, prompting voters to amend the constitution and ban gay marriage again.

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the 9th Circuit's striking of the ban as unconstitutional.

Despite the will of the people, gay marriage is now a done deal - and spreading nationwide.

Armed with the SCOTUS decision, gay state Sen. Mark Leno of San Francisco wanted to 'clean up' the messy traditions of heterosexual marriage in California.  So he created SB1306.  Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB1306 yesterday.

The newly signed law lets fudge-packers and muff-divers unite in matrimony.

The law also requires the words 'husband' and 'wife' be stricken from all monuments, monoliths, buildings, books, pillars, pylons, cereal packages, comic books, registrys, transcripts, chronicles, newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, trophies, boat hulls, tombstones, freeway overpasses, outhouses, obituaries, birth certificates and tree trunks in the state.

And replaced with 'I now prounounce you spouse and spouse.'
