The Other Marriage Items

Still too early to call California's Proposition 8, and it might still be too early to call the marriage amendments in Arizona and Florida. But with majorities of the precincts counted in both of those states, they look likely to pass. (Remember: Florida needs 60 percent to pass; Arizona, which rejected a marriage amendment in 2006, just needs a majority.)

Likewise, Arkansas's initiative barring cohabiting couples from adopting or from serving as foster parents looks like it will pass by a significant margin.
