PAUL KATAMI, PLAINTIFF IN CASE AGAINST PROPOSITION 8, SAYING:
"Today is a very important day for Kris and Sandy and her family, Jeff and myself and our country. Like all Americans we believe the institution of marriage, helps to build stable and strong families and that's why we're here. Jeff and I long to be married and start a family of our own and have the equal rights that are guaranteed to all Americans that are in loving and committed relationships. And today marks the final chapter in a long four year journey toward that goal."
KRIS PERRY, PLAINTIFF IN CASE AGAINST PROPOSITION 8, SAYING:
"Today I am hopeful. Today I hopeful that we will finally feel the equality and inclusion that will come with the reversal of Proposition 8. Sandy and I look forward to a day when we can celebrate our marriage with our four children and all of the children in California and across the country can feel included and as good as everybody else."
