This is good news for all gay Americans:
The Supreme Court has struck down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act forbidding federal recognition of gay marriages for couples residing in states that recognize their union.
The court's decision came by a ruling of 5-4.
The ruling is one of two major gay marriage rulings being considered by the High Court. The court is also ruling on Proposition 8, California's anti-gay marriage law.
DOMA defines marriage as between "one man and one woman as husband and wife" for purposes of federal law.
How do you feel about this?
