I believe that marriage was created as a sacred union between one man and one woman, and we must do all within our power to protect it. Therefore, in light of a of recent Supreme Court decisions, I support a Constitutional Amendment that would strictly define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
DOMA, which I supported in along with 84 of my colleagues in the Senate and members of the House of Representatives, was ed into law by President Clinton on September 21, DOMA defined marriage as the union between a man and a woman in the eyes of the federal government.
Although DOMA defined marriage for federal purposes, it also allowed each of the fifty states to determine their own respective definitions of marriage. In Windsor, the Supreme Court held Section 3 was unconstitutional and that the federal government may not define marriage for its own purposes. In doing so, the Court suggests that Congress does not have the power or authority to define the meaning of words in laws that Congress itself enacts.
Although the Supreme Court did not create a constitutional right to same-sex marriage by striking down Section 3 of DOMA in Windsor, that changed with the Obergefell v. Hodges on April 28, In this case, the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether or not the Constitution protects marriage between same-sex couples.
On June 26,exactly two years after Windsor was decided, the Supreme Court ruled that states cannot prohibit same-sex couples from marrying. As your United States Senator, I will always support legislation that strengthens the American family and support positive values for all of our citizens.Married wife looking real sex Shelby
