Facebook has become a greater forum for opinions on marriage, divorce, politics, religion and many other subjects of debate. Some time back a Boston radio station asked that I be interviewed about an article written by a third-party who made the claim that Facebook has substantially contributed to the increased breakdown of marriages. I declined the interview. However, as a lawyer focusing my law practice exclusively in the area of divorce and family law I found it interesting that the media has… [read post]

New York has passed a bill legalizing same sex marriage, and governor Cuomo is expected to sign it. Here is a nice, in-depth story from the NY Times on the behind the scenes stories that went into making the bill a reality. The bill passed in a state where Republicans actually control the legislature by a slim margin. But the Times article makes it plain that the decisions turned on personal relationships that influenced the various legislators -- gay children, relatives, friends, friends of… [read post]

I'm still digesting the SCOTUS' decisions in the Federal DOMA and California Prop. 8 cases.  The short take-away is that it is probable (though I will never say certain) that the thousand-plus references to the rights/obligations of "spouses",  in Federal laws and regulations, will now include same-sex couples who are "spouses" under the laws of the state in which they contracted a "marriage".   [read post]

The Supreme Court in a 5-4 Decision overturned provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act which defined marriage between a man and a women. The court found that DOMA violated provisions of the 5th amendment by treating same-sex marriages as “living in marriages less respected that others” (Justice Anthony Kennedy).
