Ninety members of the US House of Representatives are seeking the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, the 1996 law signed by President Bill Clinton that defined marriage for the purposes of federal law as the union of one man and one woman. The Defense of Marriage Act also protects states from being compelled to recognize homosexual marriages that took place in other states.
