This iReport is part of an assignment:
Same-sex couples react to Supreme Court rulings
DOMA IS DEAD! We can live
- rachel8, CNN iReport producer
Everything looks so normal and people on their merry way. I look for signs that something big is coming- nothing!
Waving off my husband as he goes to work- he checks again what our plans are for later. It all depends, we never know. With my drink in my hand, I walk steadily back home, counting the minutes. Supreme Court decision due at 10am.
You see today is no ordinary day. My name is Mark and my husband is
Jaime. We are a bi-national couple, affected by DOMA. It is insane how unconstitutional it is, and many are unaware of this. Our lives, our fates, rest in a decision with the Supreme Court. They will hand down
a vote that will determine whether or not we continue the life we have built in the US and NYC.
Plans for a celebration later darling? It all depends, we never know.
Please let it be! Let DOMA die!
and so it was - DOMA IS DEAD!
