Back when I was in my teens, one of the things which had a big "oooh aaaaah" factor was common law marriage. According to the law, if you lived with your partner for 7 years, you were married just as legally as if you had marched down the aisle in funny clothes with people throwing rice and rose petals at you. We all thought that was cool.

If common law marriage is the law in California, and is retroactive, then I know at least three gay couples who are legally married whether or not they do the dance of the red tape.
