Attorney General Lynch Announces Federal Marriage Benefits Available to Same-Sex Couples Nationwide




Attorney General Lynch announced today that federal marriage benefits will be available to same-sex couples nationwide following the Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges:

?Following the Supreme Court?s historic decision in Obergefell that every couple has the same right to participate in the institution of marriage, whether the partners are of the same-sex or opposite sexes, I directed Justice Department staff to work with the agencies to ensure that the ruling be given full effect across the federal government. Thanks to their leadership and the quick work of the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs, today I am proud to announce that the critical programs for veterans and elderly and disabled Americans, which previously could not give effect to the marriages of couples living in states that did not recognize those marriages, will now provide federal recognition for all marriages nationwide. The agencies are currently working towards providing guidance to implement this change in law. Just over a year ago, Attorney General Holder announced that agencies across the federal government had implemented the Supreme Court?s Windsor decision by treating married same-sex couples the same as married opposite-sex couples to the greatest extent possible under the law as it then stood. With the Supreme Court?s new ruling that the Constitution requires marriage equality, we have now taken the further step of ensuring that all federal benefits will be available equally to married couples in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the US Territories. The department will continue to work across the administration to fulfill our commitment to equal treatment for all Americans, including equal access to the benefits of marriage that the Obergefell decision guarantees.?

Glad to see you recognizing and supporting it max! 

Butterbean --- 2 years ago -

Good news. Equality under the law. 

Judas --- 2 years ago -

All for one and one for all. 

logic --- 2 years ago -

That's not equality. 

Butterbean --- 2 years ago -

That's not equality.

Sounds like equality to me. 

Joe Blow --- 2 years ago -

That's not equality.


E Q U A L under the law. 

logic --- 2 years ago -

Still not equality. 

fuzz81 --- 2 years ago -

Sound argument, logic. Thanks for the insightful comment. 

Butterbean --- 2 years ago -

I think I'm noticing that logic isn't. 

logic --- 2 years ago -

Because you don't know what the truth is. 

fuzz81 --- 2 years ago -

What is your source of truth, logic? 

whywhywhy1 --- 2 years ago -

I wonder how many lawsuits will be brought on from now recognizable common law relationships that are ending?

If they have met the guidelines they are due their fair share.

In some aspects they had protected status all along.

It was time for marriage equality in every sense of the word. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

logic, be happy! Gay couples will now have to go thru expensive divorces like the rest of us! Lol! 

Max01 --- 2 years ago -

Good news. Equality under the law.

It's a bad law.

From Dr. King's letter from the Birmingham jail (citing Augustine) ?an unjust law is no law at all? ? and Aquinas who defined an unjust law as ?a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.?

I think the state of Texas should not listen to the Supreme Court - Said King, ?One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.?
