Sometimes, the Supreme Court gets it right.
I think for all of those families who have been affected by the ups and downs of both Prop 8 and DOMA, this falls under the category of “it’s about time already!”
Justice Kennedy delivered the court’s opinion:
“The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity…By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment.”
“It matters not who you love, where you love, why you love, when you love or how you love, it matters only that you love” ~ John Lennon
