Just a few minutes ago, the California Supreme Court overturned a ban on same-sex marriages. (You can find a link to the court's decision here.) It's an important decision: California could become the second state to allow gay marriages.

We'll talk with a reporter from KQED, our member station in San Francisco, who has been covering the six cases, consolidated into one (Marriage Cases, S147999), and we'll hear from California's former attorney general and Vince Chhabria, a deputy attorney for the city of San Francisco.

If you have a question about the decision, leave it here. If you are part of a same-sex couple, living in California, what does this decision mean to you?
