Celebrate The Repeal Of DOMA And Prop 8 With This Rainbow Wedding
This morning, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 vote to deem the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional. In effect, DOMA blocked the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages in the states where they are legal, and prevented legally married same-sex couples from receiving federal government benefits. No longer is this the case.
The good news doesn't end there today. The court also ruled against Proposition 8, an initiative that barred same-sex couples from getting married in the state of California. The decision also declares that opponents of same-sex marriage in Calif. do not have standing to sue.
This calls for celebration, and what better way to celebrate a HUGE step for marriage equality than a rainbow-themed wedding between two women who were brought together on Twitter by their love of Lady Gaga? Watch Eli and Sharon tie the knot in style.
