The Day After DOMA

So it’s now the day after the Supreme Court overruled DOMA. It’s still all over the news. People are still celebrating. Though it is a major milestone for someone like me, I find I’m celebrating a little less today. Cheering a little softer. Why? Because their ruling doesn’t apply to me. There are still only 13 states where same-sex marriage is legal. Neither my state nor the one I wish to live in with my Beloved recognise same-sex marriages. So as far as I am concerned and my future marital state, yesterday’s ruling doesn’t matter.

Best of luck to those of you fortunate enough to live in states where you are allowed all rights and privileges.
