Ray Opthof, 55, left, kisses his husband, Mark Opthof, 44, with their two West Highland White Terriers and two Chihuahuas in a portrait at their Lehigh Acres, Fla. home Wednesday, June 26, 2013. The couple was married last Sept. in a ceremony in New York City. Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States found Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional in a 5-4 vote. The ruling is a victory for gay married couples that open the doors of tax, health and retirement benefits. In Florida, same sex marriage is still not performed. "What I'm seeing today is the bulldozer clearing the brush out of the way," Ray said. "Today the path (toward recognizing same-sex marriages) was cleared."
