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.

    Can't say that I like the whole "gay" thing but I suppose if that's their choice that's their business. Just wish they would stop telling the rest of us how "normal" it is. "Normal" to them it must seem but not to the vast majority of us who don't happen to share or agree with THEIR views.

    Celebrity gay/lesbians are just the same as regular gay/lesbians; will it last or not? I had no clue that Jane Lynch was a lesbian; absolutely surprised me!! Even though I have seen her play lesbian roles a few times in certain movies and/or play a "supporting role" that deals with such subject matter! My mom, had a civil union with her partner when I was a teenager...after 25 years...more or less they are no longer together but, they are still best friends and help each other out these days no matter what!!

    Well, I don't believe in same sex marriage (no offense), but I believe Elton John and David Furnish have the most solid looking relationship. They both seem like nice people, though Elton gets a little spicy around the paparazzi. I think Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi will not last. If you watch the interview Ellen had with Portia on her show, Portia's leg was swinging alot. This is not typical of her in other interviews I have seen. Also, Portia has a whole "hand on the shoulder" thing going on. Don't want to see Ellen hurt, but I don't think it will work out. I don't believe Cynthia Nixon is really gay so it's a mute point.

    Unfortunately gays, while working at holding their marriages together, are also having to fight an uphill battle with society - one they shouldn't be having to fight. Pathetically, this world has a long way to go before it is truly civilized. Amazingly, the most uncivilized are usually the most religious.

    I have a question. If all sins are equal in the eyes of the Lord, why do we spend so much time condemning this one? Perhaps to take your minds off the ones YOU commit on a daily basis? You do know being FAT is a sin too, right?

    They have just as much chance as the heteros in the world. I say good luck and congratulations!!! Oh, and lemme know if any of these folks getting married affected any straight people you happen to know. I seriously doubt it!
    As for all the zealots spouting all this Right Ring Rhetoric:
    Judge not, lest ye be judged.
    It will be interesting to see how you're judged when you finally meet HIM. Taking HIS name in vain, using HIM to push your agenda "in the name of GOD" and the likes, can't be good for the resume when you meet St. Peter at the gates. No matter what you think, I don't think OUR GOD is vengeful, hateful and wants us putting our noses into the lives of others who just seem to want the same rights as every one else.
    I say, let them be as happy or as miserable as we are in our marriages, jobs and homes. How is this going to affect you? If you've raised your children right as you think you are/have, YOU SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR with anyone telling you or them that being gay is okay. It's not a recruting statement, it's a statement telling people that there's no need to hate, discriminate, judge, defile or defame anyone for being gay and as far as I'm concerned, that is the TRUE CHRISTIAN WAY TO GO/BE and how GOD would want us to act/be towards people no matter what...

They're not saying that you or your children should be or need to be gay, too! Wake up! You're giving all the rest of us that think with our brains a bad name.
    Lastly, the only way that you or your children would be affected by this is if they were gay to begin with. You don't "become gay" just because someone talked to you about it or because someone told you it's okay. Gays are born gay....it's not a career choice you "become".
