On Friday, the Supreme Court decided to hear two cases related to marriage equality: a case related to whether the federal government has to respect state law’s regarding marriage and case asking whether a law preventing consenting couples to marry based on sex is unconstitutional.I’m not at all experienced in watching the Court and predicting what is going to happen, so I don’t know if my opinion is completely ridiculous. However, wouldn’t one decision (if the Court recognizes their own precedent regarding marriage as a fundamental right) (that on Prop 8) make the other (that on DOMA) moot? If the Court decided that it is unconstitutional to deny marriage rights based on sex, then wouldn’t it follow that DOMA is also unconstitutional? This tells me how the Court is going to rule, at least on Prop 8. I hope I’m wrong.
