    also if you say marriage as been that way in law since the begging why are these EXTRA, NEW and SPECIAL laws needed?????

    what a complete joke, there no logic to support calling them "special" thats why its bias and you are not objective on the subject
    You are changing the law to give one group special rights

    nope im chaining the law to give EQUAL rights (just like interracial marriage)
    and if you want to be dishonest and play silly games I can play silly games too. I can claim the "group" in question would be EVERYBODY, not just gays. Two straight girls/men could marry if they want, the law would be given to them too!!! so again you are WRONG

    people are adding SPECIAL laws to the books to prevent EQUAL rights, even though you claim those laws are already in place we have to make NEW SPECIAL ones for some odd reason

    I don't know what their chances are, but I am tentatively optimistic.
    One of the very few things that I actually agree with Obama on. Good for him. Its about time that the federal government started recognizing GM.

    Haha.

    I had to look it up, so I'll share...

    The 1996 Republican Party platform endorsed DOMA, referencing only Section 2 of the Act: "We reject the distortion of [anti-discrimination] laws to cover sexual preference, and we endorse the Defense of Marriage Act to prevent states from being forced to recognize same-sex unions."[16] The Democratic Party platform that year did not mention DOMA or marriage.[17]

    In a June 1996 interview in the gay and lesbian magazine The Advocate, Clinton said: "I remain opposed to same-sex marriage. I believe marriage is an institution for the union of a man and a woman. This has been my long-standing position, and it is not being reviewed or reconsidered."[18] He did not mention the issue in his 2004 autobiography.[19] Over time, Clinton's personal views on same-sex marriage shifted. In July 2009 he said "I personally support people doing what they want to do. I think it's wrong for someone to stop someone else from doing that [gay marriage]."[20] Clinton added that he personally supports same-sex marriage but does not believe it is a "federal question", stating, "I think all these states that do it should do it."[21]

    The bill moved through Congress on a legislative fast track and met with overwhelming approval in both houses of the Republican-controlled Congress, passing by a vote of 8514 in the Senate[22] and a vote of 34267 in the House of Representatives.[23] It was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on September 21, 1996.

    "Clinton's personal views on same-sex marriage shifted."

    I reckon when you get caught with your sweatpants down around your ankles jerking off and ask a campaign staffer to kiss your weenis, get accused of rape and sexual assault, get proven to be a whorehound, and entice an intern to masturbate with a cigar for your smoking pleasure, it makes sense your views on the actions of others might become a bit more 'liberal'...

    You know - you don't have to HAVE HAD a divorce to be directly affected by one. Many children and close friends and relatives experience the banals of divorce quite often - indirectly but quite personally.

    So non-divorcees can have an opinion if they'd like.
