    right now in California (and most U.S. states I would assume) - pre- and post- Prop 8.

    1. you go get your civil marriage license from the government, and then
    1. you have a ceremony done where you say some vows (this step can be religious or non-religious as the couple prefers).  Finito.

    This is exactly how it is done now.  The idea that people were going to be "forced to change their religious beliefs" is the ultimate non-existant boogeyman.

    Welcome to California: land of sunshine and bigotry.
