Marriage is this magical thing …. Edie Windsor!!

~April 13, 2015~~ 

Edith Windsor (born 1929) and Thea Spyer (born 1931), a same-sex couple residing in New York, were lawfully married in Ontario, Canada, in 2007. Spyer died in 2009, leaving her entire estate to Windsor. Windsor sought to claim the federal estate tax exemption for surviving spouses. She was barred from doing so by Section 3 of DOMA (codified at 1 U.S.C. § 7), which provided that the term “spouse” only applied to marriages between a man and woman.

The Internal Revenue Service found that the exemption did not apply to same-sex marriages, denied Windsor’s claim, and compelled her to pay $363,053 in estate taxes.

    • Haven’t talked to him for a bit … on phone. Once in a while, we talk through the blog. I’m wondering how’s he’s doing with this continued “genocide”. I know that has really gotten to him.
      Why are you concerned?
