ABSTRACT
The article reports that since the ban of sodomy by the U.S. Supreme Court through the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the place of gays and lesbians in the American culture has focused on family matters. DOMA meant legal recognition of spousal relationships and federal benefits connected to the parent-child relationship might not apply, depending on the situation.
