    A new initiative has been certified in California further protecting the institution of marriage. Would you support this new defense of marriage act?

    It's not defending, it's preventing.

    Are they defending the right to get divorced? Wait, if they were "protecting" the institution of marriage, I guess divorce wouldn't be allowed anymore, right?

    No, everyone currently allowed to marry will still be allowed to marry.

    I'm not currently allowed to marry.

    Bingo! It will outlaw divorce in California.
    This I understand, how preventing gay and lesbian couples from marrying as a means to protect the instituton of marriage never made sense. This does.
