"This court simply "cannot say that DOMA is directed to any identifiable legitimate purpose or discrete objective. It is a status-based enactment divorced from any factual context from which this court could discern a relationship to legitimate government interests. Indeed, Congress undertook this classification for the one purpose that lies entirely outside of legislative bounds, to disadvantage a group of which it disapproves. And such a classification, the Constitution clearly will not permit." (Gill)

Half full or half empty?

Those 5 counties account for over 50% of the entire population, and anyone in the state can get married in one of those counties.

and once married in one of those counties, their marriage will be valid in their own county as well. They just have to cross the county line to get their licence.

The dominoes are falling, but the last to fall will probably need to be knocked down by the courts, unless the legislature finds the courage to live up to the equal protection promises of the founding documents and the requirements of the constitution.

Let freedom ring!
