The Supreme Court has ruled that under the Equal Protection clause that the Federal Defense of Marriage Act "Demeans the people who are under lawful same-sex marriages" and is therefore Unconstitutional.

It is beyond the expected narrow ruling today written by justice Antony Kennedy.

US Supreme Court overturns gay marriage ban

The US Supreme Court has struck down a law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman only, in a landmark ruling.

The court's 5-4 vote said the Defense of Marriage Act, known as Doma, denied equal protection to same-sex couples.

The decision means that legally married gay men and women are entitled to claim the same federal benefits available to opposite-sex married couples.
