California Gay Marriages

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says same-sex marriages would be fine by him if the courts or voters change state law to make them legal.

California law only recognizes marriages between a man and a woman. Appearing on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Schwarzenegger said he supports the law approved by California voters last year.

But asked if he would have any problem if the law was changed, Schwarzenegger said no.

Schwarzenegger has ordered state Attorney General Bill Lockyer to "take immediate steps" to stop San Francisco from allowing gay marriages but has done nothing to enforce the directive.

He says it's up to the states to decide the issue and does not support a constitutional amendment.
