"It appears that no rational purpose exists for limiting marriage in this state to opposite sex partners," Judge Richard Kramer of the San Francisco County Superior Court wrote.

The newspaper notes that if the ruling stands, California would join Massachusetts in allowing same-sex marriage.

A group that opposes gay marriage says it will appeal the decision.

"This is one battle in a long war," says Robert Tyler, legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund. "This decision will have no effect unless a court of appeal affirms the trial court's decision."
