Not Equal Yet: Building Upon Foundations of Relationship Equality

The U.S. v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry decisions mark a milestone for marriage equality in the United States. However, many unanswered questions remain as more states legalize same-sex marriage. The following panels will address this dynamic legal framework as the nation moves forward.
