In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word ‘marriage’ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word ‘spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.
That’s what the Defense of Marriage Act, Section 3 claimed for almost 17 years.
And what humanity claimed from the beginning of time.

Actually, just one that mattered (if you want to look at it that way). If one of those five had voted differently, the outcome would have been different.
I wonder how those five propose to define marriage.
On what basis would they say these aren’t valid marriages:
- Three or more people without regard to gender?
- Two people sharing one or more spouses but not married to each other?
- An adult and a teenager?
- Two adult siblings?
- Any two adults without regard to marital status or family relationship?
And how is denying such arrangements not a manifestation of bigotry, hate, phobia, and so forth?
