A victory for California's same-sex couples

Stating that both members of a same-sex couple are equally responsible for any children that result from their relationship if the couple breaks up doesn't sound like a victory, but it is. It can be hard for us to wrap our brains about it, but ruling in this way, even though it relates to a negative situation with the couple, is paving the way for total same-sex equal rights. Ruling that gay couples with children have the same rights and responsibilities as straight couples with children is one step closer to giving gay couples the recognition as a legitimate union, and who knows... perhaps one day allowing them to marry!
