What do you think of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on DOMA and same-sex marriage?

“I am very uncomfortable trying to determine what someone else’s idea of happiness is. I happen to be a female who married a man, but if another person can find love with someone of the same gender, who am I to fight that or try to legislate that? You know, it hasn’t been that long ago that we were having the same discussions about interracial marriages and they are commonplace now.”
