Although a handful of states have legalized same-sex marriage, many legal pitfalls still remain because of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman and therefore denies same-sex spouses many rights. Join Ara Gershengorn, Bob Goldman & Alyssa Rower for a lively discussion about:
– The recent legal challenges to DOMA and surrounding constitutional issues
– Crafting around DOMA: Prenuptial agreements and estate planning;
– Leaving a state that recognizes same-sex marriage and moving to a “mini DOMA” state;
– Special issues for same-sex couples in marriage and divorce
