Abstract

In this Essay, I explore evolving notions of marriage and their impact on immigration law. In particular, the Supreme Court's decision holding section three of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional in United States v. Windsor has had profound and immediate effects on the immigration rights of same-sex couples.
