Same-Sex Marriage: Is PA About to Become a Battleground State?

Recently, the United States Supreme Court ruled on the constiutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and struck down several provisions of the law. DOMA famously defined marriage under federal law as between a man and a woman.  Not surprisingly, this decision has sparked debate and action in various states who's own similar laws are being questioned.  Pennsylvania is one such state.  The PA Marriage Law also defines marriage as between one man and one woman, preventing same-sex couples from marrying in the Commonweath.  Until, now.
