The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), enacted September 21, 1996, is a federal law that allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages granted under the laws of other states. Until Section 3 of the Act was ruled unconstitutional in 2013, DOMA, in conjunction with other statutes, had barred same-sex married couples from being recognized as "spouses" for purposes of federal laws, effectively barring them from receiving federal marriage benefits. DOMA's passage did not prevent individual states from recognizing gay marriage, but it imposed constraints on the benefits received by all legally married gay couples.
