    It isn't supposed to. Did you not notice how much attention it got during the elections? Apparently doma was more important than the economy. Hell my own party pisses me off when they mention it.

    The decision striking down part of DOMA was a good decision in my view. It asserted states rights and disavowed the Federal govt's denial of rights granted by states to it's citizens. You don't have to agree with ssm to see that.

    That's my take on it, too. It's the right call even when you don't agree with same sex marriage. The rest of DOMA, however, is not so questionable.

    Section 2. Powers reserved to the states
    No State, territory, or possession of the United States, or Indian tribe, shall be required to give effect to any public act, record, or judicial proceeding of any other State, territory, possession, or tribe respecting a relationship between persons of the same sex that is treated as a marriage under the laws of such other State, territory, possession, or tribe, or a right or claim arising from such relationship.

    If I had to guess, that part will be next. Seems to me that this provision violates the reciprocity rule among states.

    This decision makes it even less desirable to live in the barbaric states that don't allow SSM. Definitely getting out of here after degree is finished.

    Re: DOMA unconstitutional. 5-4 decision.

    With precedent in place, only a matter of days before anti-marriage recognition laws are sued out of existence.
