They didn’t acknowledge a lot of legislation that California does so I really don’t think it is a matter of them really worrying about their recognizing the marriages…its the fact that the religious people who have been ignoring the whole “separation of church and state” thing are finally having to acknowledge that “traditional marriage” means “marriage defined by a religion” and not a union between two people.
Ten states urge Calif. court to delay marriage ruling

The attorneys general of 10 states are urging the California Supreme Court to delay finalizing its ruling to legalize same-sex marriage.
The states involved are Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah.
The attorneys general say they have an interest in the case because they would have to determine if their states would recognize the marriage of gay residents who wed in California. They want the court to stay its ruling until after the November election, when voters likely will decide whether to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage.
California Attorney General Jerry Brown, whose office originally argued to uphold the state’s one man-one woman marriage laws, is urging the Supreme Court not to grant the stay.
