So, the Supreme Court finally decided the DOMA and Prop 8 cases. Well, they declared DOMA unconstitutional. They found the backers of Prop 8 didn’t have standing to appeal the lower courts’ decisions. This is about what I expected from the court. Any ruling on that matter would certainly have led to state-by-state repercussions, no doubt accompanied by accusations of judicial activism and cries for secession.
It is expected that California will soon resume issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Many will rush out and tie the knot. I even received an email from a friend which said, “DOMA’s dead! You need to get married, bro.”
And now, maybe someday I will.
