Documenting Same-Sex Couples and the Defense of Marriage Act

Mark-Up on DOMA Rescheduled

The Senate Judiciary Committee met today to mark-up and debate the Defense of Marriage Act (or DOMA). Open statements regarding the Respect for Marriage Act, a bill that aims to repeal DOMA, were made by Sens. Leahy, Feinstein and Schumer but the mark-up was held until Nov. 10th.

    We are confident that there are not the votes to override a veto and the effort to repeal marriage will fail.

      i think gay people sulhod be allowed to marry eachother and have it called marrage. I think its just discriminating when they dont allow it to be called marrage just because the two people are of the same sex. Marrage is supposed to be the union of two people who love eachother, it sulhodnt matter what your gender is.
