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.

    I think gay marriages will be just like heterosexual marriages. 50% will succeed and 50% will end in divorce. Marriage is about love. If they truely love one another they will be together til death do them part.

    I agree w/you. Something is just not 'normal' with it. I just can't look at a woman and feel anything sexual at all. I've had some really bad problems w/men in my life but that would never make me turn to women. Maybe some are truly 'born' that way but it would only a very ,very tiny amount and not all of the the so-called gays we hear about.
    No, they should not be allowed to be 'married' like a straight couple.

    I think that you make a good point, the act is lustful and some people like doing what deep within they know is wrong.

    Gay or straight.staying married takes mutual commitment. Either orientation has an equal chance of lasting in marriage or divorcing.
