Gay and Lesbian Couples Must Wait Longer for Prop. 8 Decision on Gay Marriage

Gay and Lesbian couples in San Francisco and across the state have put their lives on hold — again — as they await the Supreme Court's final decision on Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage. The court announced today that it would review the legality of the law, which means the debate will drag out through 2013.

Couples like San Francisco residents Renata Moirera, 35, and her partner, 29-year-old Lori Bilella, have been together for five years, and are eagerly waiting to tie the knot. As prospective parents, the couple is concerned that Moirera's dual Brazilian and American citizenship will create problems for their children unless they can legally marry.
