Goodbye DOMA

Record #:
In another controversial U.S. Supreme Court decisions, the justices struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which federally banned same-sex marriage. Unfortunately, for the state's same-sex couples marriage, for them, was made unconstitutional on May 8, 2012 by a state-wide vote. Legal issues and compensation for same-sex couples is still waiting clarification because though DOMA end discrimination federally, states can still determine whether or not to recognize, legally, same-sex marriages.
