Well Surprise Me Why Don’t Cha….US Supreme Court in historic rulings on marriage equality

I am not an Attorney, I just Play One In My Imagination.

The US Supreme Court has struck down a law denying federal benefits to gay couples and cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California.

The justices said that the Defense of Marriage Act, known as Doma, discriminated against same-sex couples.

They declined to rule on California's prohibition of same-sex marriage, known as Proposition 8, leaving in place a lower court's strike-down of the ban.

However I know attorneys and a little about the Fair Faith and Commerce provision in the Constitution. I had previously posted that marriage equality was an inevitability because if something is deemed legal in one state then thhe states that engage in commerce with that state MUST respect the laws of that state.

People celebrate outside the Supreme Court after two historic gay marriage rulings in Washington DC 26 June 2013

My only doubts about whether DOMA and Prop  8 would be upheld stemmed from the other online lesbian sites who were unnesscessarily worrying.

Granted SCOTUS didn’t  speciffically m,ake marriage equality the law of the land, however analysts said that the language in Justice Roberts ruling was so sweeping that it can be used to argue for marriage equality in every state.  Hear that North Carolina?! Hear That Virginia and Texas?! You’re NEXT!
