A bill signed into law on Monday in California by Governor Brown has made the words Husband and Wife illegal. Yep, illegal. Don’t believe it, read the text of the bill for yourself: SB 1306. Here are the first two paragraphs of the bill:
An existing provision of the California Constitution, which has been held unenforceable, states that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in this state. An existing statutory provision likewise provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in this state.This bill would repeal that statutory provision.
Here the lawmakers are already trying to restructure marriage to fit their view. But they go even further a few paragraphs later.
The bill would delete references to “husband” or “wife” in the Family Code and would instead refer to a “spouse,” and would make other related changes.
Delete husband or wife and make it a generic name. Why does everything in today’s society have to be generic? We’ve lost our creativity and this shows. Many don’t have problems with a male marrying a male, or a female marrying a female, but this extreme will not help their crusade to be recognized as equals. I think, in the long run, such actions by misguided democrats will harm more than help. After all, what if a woman wishes to refer to her female partner as her wife? Guess democrat Mark Leno or Governor Brown never thought about that.
