This week the Supreme Court struck down a key provision if the Defense of Marriage Act, DOMA, that defined “marriage” as a man-woman union and denied same-sex couples any federal benefits, including immigration benefits. The decision marks a landmark, watershed moment for gay and lesbian marriage rights. The ignorance of DOMA’s policy disqualified same-sex couples from over a thousand federal benefits. The Supreme Court held that this was a violation of equal protection. We at Youman, Madeo and Fasano hail this humanitarian decision.
