The Supreme Court has made another decision that will probably alter the course of the United State for ever. At 10:00 am this morning the court declared that the Defense of Marriage Act, passed in 1960 was unconstitutional. This opens up states rights to allow same sex marriages. In California, Prop 8 is still being discussed since voters ratified it in a general election. The Federal Government however must recognize same sex marriages particularly in the case of surviving spouses and treatment under the IRS rules. This is what prompted the case in the first place. No matter what, the social change from this ruling will change the country forever, not unlike some other decisions the Supreme Court has made over time.
Have a great day, and be kind to yourself!
