Washington, (ANI): American talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and actor George Takei's same gender marriages will remain legal despite the new ruling to uphold the ban on gay weddings in California.
The California Supreme Court has revealed that those gay couples who exchanged vows between May and November last year will be considered married, reports Contactmusic. The ban came into effect late last year (08) - six months after gay marriages were declared legal in May (08).
DeGeneres wed girlfriend Portia De Rossi and Star Trek actor Takei exchanged vows with longtime partner Brad Altman during the legal window on same gender marriages.
Responding to the latest development, DeGeneres, said "One day, when everyone is treated with full equality, we'll look back and realise how wrong this was."
