DOMA and Prop 8

If you haven’t heard it elsewhere then you should know that the Supreme Court of the USA struck down both DOMA and Prop 8 thus legalising “Gay Marriage”.

Don’t you know what this means?

Gay people can  get married to each other!

So what does this mean for the USA? Well…

Nothing. For the majority of Americans nothing will change. For some though? They will be able to find legal recognition of a promise of a bond between two people. They will be able to find happiness.

I bet the next hurricane will be blamed on this. Any Takers?

    Wrong wrong, wrong. They did not, repeat did not, strike down Prop. 8. They ruled that the plaintiffs did not have standing at the appellant level as the state officials had declined to appeal. Not the same thing. As a matter of fact, their is a possible dispute as to whether the District Court ruling applies statewide or only in the District Court judge’s district.

    It also means same-sex married couples can start filing joint taxes and collecting federal partner benefits.

    While it is a significant step forward it didn’t really legalized gay marriage. Only section 3 of DOMA was struck which mean that gay marriage preformed in the states that legalized them would be now recognized by the federal authorities allowing these couples access to, from what I read, over a thousand benefits, mostly as Ace of Sevens pointed, regarding taxes but also allow an American married to a non-American request a green card for their spouse like heterosexual couples can. However section 2 is still in effect which mean that states are not required to recognize same sex marriage preformed in another state like they would with heterosexual marriage.

    “The amazing thing about social media sites is that when visitors like you or your business,
    all they have to do is click a button and everyone they know will be notified of
    your existence and page. If they do not do so they
    will loose their customer base. The possibilities are endless with
    this Slideshare. This may appear overwhelming or daunting, but do not let this
    put you off: it is exciting, new and fast-paced.
    Many people have multiple social networking accounts and may even do things online under different names.
    A blog is the internet’s most prominent area that is capable of promoting anything and make it famous.”
