IN THE LIFE MEDIA PRESENTS: MARRIED BUT NOT EQUAL




IN THE LIFE examines the real-life impact of the Defense of Marriage Act

August 1, 2011 — This August, public television stations across the country will begin airing Married But Not Equal, an episode from the award-winning news-magazine IN THE LIFE examining the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Social security benefits, child tax credits and immigration rights are just three of the 1,138 benefits, rights and protections that married heterosexual couples receive from the Federal Government. But because of DOMA, gays and lesbians are denied every single one of them — even if they are legally married in the state they live in.
IN THE LIFE sits down with five married, same-sex couples for a look at the real-life impact of DOMA, and examines the battle to repeal the law in Congress and in the courts.

  1. Hopefully, the inequality of DOMA will be an issue from the past soon. Court cases challenging the law are increasingly successful as they progress through the justice system.

    1. Little by little, we will get what is rightfully ours.

  2. I am lucky enough to live in a country that accepts same-sex marriage as equal.

    1. Funny enough my friend pointed out that c and i will be legally in a common law partnership, marriage or no. The commented " equality is a bitch".

    2. Would you consider getting married?

    3. As in a wedding? Hells no. But we have the same rights with common law, so why go through the bother and expense.
