As Earlier Predicted By Me, By A 5 To 4 Opinion, U. S. Supreme Court Voids An Important Part Of Federal Defense Of Marriage Act, Thereby Gutting It.

The Court said this:

"DOMA’s principal effect is to identify and make unequal a subset ofstate-sanctioned marriages. It contrives to deprive some couples married under the laws of their State, but not others, of both rights and responsibilities, creating two contradictory marriage regimes within the same State. It also forces same-sex couples to live as married for the purpose of state law but unmarried for the purpose of federal law, thus diminishing the stability and predictability of basic personal relations the State has found it proper to acknowledge and protect."
