The Court does not make legislation, they interpret legislation, and all you need is the Appeals court in California.
Yeah, there's so much support for child marriage in California that it sickens me (please note sarcasm).

Seriously, once you start altering marriage to cater to one group, you have to cater to the others as well.
Like, say, the gays?

The point remains that there is an argument for marriage as it currently is to care for children that result of that union.
Such as adopted kids.

As has been pointed out, the 'tradition' of marriage has been so diluted over the past few thousand years it's not even a 'tradition' any more.
In your opinion.
No, not "in his opinion". In documented reality. Marriage, like everything else, is ever-changing.
