Gay couples -- famous and non -- rejoiced on Wednesday when a judge struck down Proposition 8, California's voter-approved same-sex marriage ban, as an unconstitutional violation of their civil rights.

But rather than celebrating in the streets, celebrities largely took to Twitter to express their happiness.

"This just in: Equality Won!" Ellen DeGeneres tweeted.

Added her wife, Portia de Rossi: "I am ecstatic that proposition 8 has been overturned in the state of California. This is an incredibly exciting and historical day and a big step towards equal rights for all."



"YEAHHHHH!!!!! #prop8unconstitutional Moving Forward!!!!!!!!" Ricky Martin wrote.


Lindsay Lohan's ex Samantha Ronson also weighed in, tweeting, "Song Of The Day: Let's Get Married- Jagged Edge."



"Star Trek" icon George Takei told E! Online that he and his husband were "overjoyed."

The decision will likely be appealed and could go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which may put California's gay weddings on hold. But by now, many same-sex couples have already taken advantage of the six states where these unions are legal.

Just like traditional marriages, some of these couples have been together for decades and others are young lovebirds.

We always assumed that gay unions would somehow be more solid and last longer since they fought so hard as a group to have that right. But in reality, relationships are frail no matter what the sex of the partners. Some same-sex couples we thought would last forever have already split, while others are still going strong. So we wonder, of all the famous gay couples, who will last and who won't?
You!

    A marrige is a marrige. does not matter if gay or straight. Celebs seem to have a higher rate of divorce it depends on compatbilty of the 2. I am divorced but not acelebrety and the reason was greed and meaness on the other side. Marrige issuppossed to be about love, caring, trust, give and take on both sides not just one. One sided unions are domed.

    Damn good thing they didn't try this stunt in any of our more friendly Muslim Countries any way! They just better hope their own Liberal friends don't start turning on them when it comes to Muslim law within our own country!The very laws that even the far left ACLU is pushing for now as a matter of fact! They Just might want to try to find out just who their real friends are at some point right? Because if these Muslim groups ever get their own way with their own laws in this country-you had better believe heads will roll!
