Prop8 + DOMA: Making Sense of Laws that Don’t Make Sense

by Kate R. Paine

Equal Magazine’s May/June 2013 issue featured Kate Paine’s article, “Prop8 + DOMA: Making Sense of Laws that Don’t Make Sense.” In the article, Kate describes the several likely ways in which the Supreme Court could decide on the fate of Proposition 8 and DOMA, both cases dealing with the controversial same-sex marriage debates.

Delaware Makes It 11

On Tuesday, May 7, 2013,  Delaware’s state senate passed a marriage equality bill, which had already been passed in the house.  Almost immediately thereafter, Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed the bill into law, making Delaware the eleventh state to recognize same-sex marriage.  The decision to pass the bill is especially significant, because it repeals the ban on same-sex marriage that Delaware has had in place since 1996—the same year DOMA was passed.
