As long as DOMA is around......Federal Financial Aid forms will still not recognize the legal marriages of Gay and Lesbian spouses.......at least that is what was explained to me not more that a couple of years back(2010)

from the article, "Its important to note, though, that collecting information from both parents and considering the income of the whole family also might result in less need-based federal student aid for those applicants who are affected because of the recognition of the complete financial resources of the family.
Seriously???? So they want to collect information on BOTH parents, one of whom might not be legally recognized due to anti-gay adoption laws and whose legal marriage is NOT recognized by the Federal government, and then reduce the student's aid award based, in part, on the income of the second parent that's not legally recognized????
It sounds like the Dept of Education is trying to get around the Federal DOMA in the very worst of ways....
What happened to "the word 'marriage' means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word 'spouse' refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife."???
The Feds can recognize same-sex parents when it comes to denying student aid but not when it comes to anything else???
And they're trying to cloak it in an attempt to be "more inclusive"???
Unbelievable. I sure hope I read this wrong, but I kinda think I didn't....
