The passage of Proposition 8, a controverial measure to outlaw recently enabled gay marriages in California will lead to an unusual arrangement, campaigners say. Gay couples that have already married will be forced to marry gay members of the opposite sex. Most notably, Star Trek actor Geroge Takei has been selected to marry fellow lesbian celebrity Ellen Degeneres.
Speaking of the decision, Mr Takei accused fellow Star Trek actor William Shatner of having a hand in the passage of Proposition 8 on November 4. "I'll have the last laugh. That toupee-wearing piece of ham will pay for this, I swear!" Takei and DeGeneres are set to be married next week - Mr Shatner has not been invited to the wedding.
