Hooray!
 
2013-06-26 10:39:51 AM
Well, not everyone.  Only people in states that recognize the marriage.

W00t!

This thread should be epic.  *grabs popcorn*

James!: Well, not everyone.  Only people in states that recognize the marriage.


Still a big step forward - some deep red states will be dragged kicking an screaming over the next (hopefully few) years.
 
2013-06-26 10:41:03 AM
No they didn't.
 
2013-06-26 10:41:09 AM
wow. thought more people would be commenting on this. even if it has only been two minutes.
 
2013-06-26 10:41:11 AM
Yes! Can't wait for the first episode of Gay Divorce Court.

How about prop 8?

To steal a quote from SCOTUSblog: for the first time ever, people are going to be excited to pay their taxes on April 15!

Let the armchair constitutional law talking commence!

Great day for all American who believe in liberty and tolerance.

/so of course that means that the GOP will subvert it and attempt to undo it at every turn.
 
2013-06-26 10:41:28 AM
Suck it, bigots.  Suck it long and hard.

Can't wait to read the slimy dissents.

One step at a time.

Suck it Cons. Wait..what
 
2013-06-26 10:41:45 AM
Good-  I feel everyone should suffer the same way. That's what this country was founded on, the right to be screwed over the same way every time, or something like that.

Mark my words, this is going to cause a brain drain.  You think a gay engineer is going to stay in Mississippi?

Pretty sure it lost standing.
 
2013-06-26 10:41:56 AM
Straight marriage is now void! Why? I dunno! Because marriage rights are a zero sum game or something!

Go gays!
 
2013-06-26 10:41:57 AM

James!: Well, not everyone.  Only people in states that recognize the marriage.


I think, had Prop 8 been ruled on today, that would have been different.  California gays win, but the overall anti-GM movement sort of dodged a bullet on that one.

Ok fark independents, who's next on your pathetic war on everyone not white and male?
 
2013-06-26 10:42:02 AM
Sweet!  Off to marry my dog now, according to all Republicans.
 
2013-06-26 10:42:02 AM
How does that work if you are a gay married couple that moves to a state that doesn't recognize your marriage?

You could file Federal taxes jointly, but not state? Seems like it might get complicated.

/It's still progress

Kicked out on standing grounds.  5-4, but the vote didn't break along ideological lines.
 
2013-06-26 10:42:05 AM
DNRTFA How did the vote go down and way to go USSC.
 
2013-06-26 10:42:06 AM
What's up with Prop 8 then? CNN seems confused.

If they were legally married the federal government has to recognize it even if they reside in a state that doesn't.
 
2013-06-26 10:42:23 AM
Nice.


Nice.
 
2013-06-26 10:42:24 AM
Until it is recognised by the IRS it does my wife and I no good. Stupid Arizona.

Its gone from factions to fractions!
 
2013-06-26 10:42:32 AM
The SCOTUS did not recognize a general right to Gay Marriage.   They recognized that the States are the decision makers on who is married and who isn't.   If your State recognizes your gay marriage, then the Feds also have to recognize it.

If your State does not recognize it, the Feds don't recognize it either.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: No they didn't.


You've obviously never been divorced.
 
2013-06-26 10:42:34 AM
Everyone is getting gay tonight!
 
2013-06-26 10:42:38 AM
Good.  Congratulations!

Now can we stop farking talking about it and move on to something that affects every American citizen?  Something like, I don't know, the out of control "intelligence" infrastructure in this country?
 
2013-06-26 10:43:07 AM
You could see this coming.

Time was, being gay was a crime. It's not anymore.

Time was, being gay was just about 2 people of the same sex having sex. It's not anymore, it's more than likely 2 people are wanting to make a life long commitment to each other.

Time was, being in a relationship with someone of the same sex meant you had no rights in health care, decisions on treatment of a loved one or opportunity to have beneficiaries to a policy, they had no inheritance rights. Someone in a relationship with someone of the same sex had different tax liabilities, different financial obligations and rights.

Today, all that changed.  I'm ok with it.

Proposition 8 has been struck down on grounds that the measure's proponents lacked standing to defend it. "The Ninth Circuit was without jurisdiction to consider the appeal. The judgment of the Ninth Circuit is vacated, and the case is remanded with instructions to dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction."
 
2013-06-26 10:43:13 AM
Okay, now what happens when a gay couiple moves to a state that doesn't recognize their marriage? Does the Federal government still recognize it, while the state doesn't?  I guess that domino is the next to fall.

That's not particularly indicative of anything.
