two important changes as a result of the DOMA ruling...
1) Federal benefits, rights and obligations extended to married heterosexual couples will be extended to same-sex couples although the process to make that work for couples that were legally married in one state and live in a state that refuses to recognize that marriage still has to be worked out.
2) Legally married bi-national couples will be able to apply for a visa that allows the spouse of an American citizen to stay here.
----------
Supreme Court Rulings Boost Gay Marriage
...The DOMA ruling had immediate effects. The Obama administration said it would move swiftly to ensure same-sex married couples get the same tax and other benefits as heterosexual couples, although the process for doing so is uncertain for same-sex couples who marry in one state, then move to a state that doesn't recognize gay marriage.
Meantime, noncitizens who are married to American same-sex partners likely would qualify for permanent resident status, lawyers said...

President Obama made this statement...
"The laws of our land are catching up to the fundamental truth that millions of Americans hold in our hearts: When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free."
Opponents of equality took a different view...
Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage said, "There's a stench coming from these cases that has now stained the Supreme Court. It's imperative that Congress continue to protect the right of states to not recognize faux marriages in their state."
I believe if it's UnConstitutional to discriminate in the Federal arena for married gays, then it will have to be UnConstitutional for the States to restrict gays from marriage.

The Far Right Responds to Supreme Court Rulings
As you might imagine, the political right, particularly the politically active religious right, is not altogether pleased with recent Supreme Court rulings concerning marriage equality.
I thought it might be worth a look at some of their reaction.
Video #1 - Texas Republican Gohmert: Gay Marriage Signals Collapse of Civilization
Video #2 - Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation on Fox News blasts DOMA decision
Video #3 - Tony Perkins of 'Washington Watch' compares Christians today to Old Testament Prophets
whose duty it is to warn the wicked to turn from their ways and suggests America is
becoming the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah
Video #4 - Bryan Fischer talking to Matt Staver's says that the court has reduced
anti-gay activists to second class citizens
Video #5 - Sandy Rios says this is part of a movement to force Christians to bow at the knee
or be crushed

Well it looks like the Court took care of an issue that would never get through Congress because of the ire the subject has raised. Now if they take up the issue of discrimination of allowing marriage between different sex individuals but not same sex people it may be a problem fixed.

Namaste my gentlelady!

You hit the nail in the head. All it would take is for one gay couple to apply for a marriage license and be denied. That would give the couple "standing" to sue the State for discrimination against a protected class.

The Court will allow the States to regulate marriage, but cannot do so along the lines of gender, sexual preference or any of the other protected classes.
