For seven years, all Dr. Nicola Simmersbach and her fiance Diana Louize have ever wanted is to get married.

“Marriage is a word everybody understands, you can say it to a small child and they’ll understand,” Simmersbach said.

But because of Proposition 8, the couple has had to put the kabash on tying the knot. They have waited a long time for this week, a time when their happiness and future as a couple would be a topic of discussion in the United States Supreme Court.

Mike Thompson, a Sacramento based pastor, still holds to traditional values.

“I have two grand kids, as a Christian grandfather I don’t want to see these kids be taught that this is okay,” Thompson said. The pastor says is our society needs to follow what our people vote for.

The Sacramento LGBT community is holding a rally at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Federal Courthouse.
