In 5-4 decision, Supreme Court rules DOMA unconstitutional

In a sharply divided and much anticipated case, the highest court in the land ruled that the Defense of Marriage act – a piece of legislation that defines marriage as a “heterosexual union” –  is unconstitutional because it denies same-sex couples government benefits that heterosexual couples already enjoy.

12 states have now amended their own statues to allow for same sex marriage, and coupled with the Supreme Court ruling on the federal Defense of Marriage Act, our nation is finally on its path of protecting equal rights among all of its law-abiding citizens regardless of sexual orientation.
