The Two U.S. Supreme Court Decisions
On Wednesday, June 26, 2013 the U.S. Supreme
Court issued two decisions on marriage. According to published
reports, the first decision dealt with the Federal Defense of Marriage
Act or DOMA. In a 5-4 decision the Court held that federal benefits
could not be denied to a homosexual couple who got married in a state where
homosexual marriages are legal. Homosexual marriages are legal in 12
states and the District of Columbia. They are not legal in
In the second case the U.S. Supreme Court, also by a 5-4 decision, held
that the party defending the Constitutional ban on homosexual marriages in California,
Proposition 8, did not have standing to bring the challenge. This means
homosexual marriages will now be legal in at least a portion of California.
