This article deals with the aftermath of the Goodridge decision in terms of employment benefits for partners in a same-sex marriage, particularly in the interstate context. Because marriages in one state are generally recognized in all other states, the article focuses on how employers must treat a Massachusetts same-sex marriage in light of the Defense of Marriage Act and its prohibition of same-sex marriage for the purpose of federal employment benefits.
