Gays and lesbians will now be able to legally marry in the state of California.

The California Supreme Court overturned their state's ban on same-sex marriage today, calling state marriage laws "discriminatory."

Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger released a statement following the decision that said: "I respect the Court's decision and as Governor, I will uphold its ruling. Also, as I have said in the past, I will not support an amendment to the constitution that would overturn this state Supreme Court ruling." 

California is now the second state to allow gay marriage, following Massachusetts.
