Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Gay Marriage: Real Housewives of New Jersey React
On June 26, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional, which means that the government can't deny federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples. The Supreme Court also upheld an earlier ruling from a California court deeming Proposition 8 unconstitutional, meaning that gay couples can now legally marry in the Golden State.
While the Real Housewives of New Jersey are on the other side of the country, they were all deeply affected by yesterday’s ruling. Caroline Manzo — whose brother Jamie married his partner in a beautiful wedding on RHoNJ last season — was very excited, tweeting, “Love is a beautiful thing! equality for all :0) lets applaud progress!”
