“Ashley and Liliana have been together for three years and have been married for one year. Ashley has been in the military for seven and a half years, and Liliana has been serving for 11 years. They recently welcomed into the world a baby boy, Brice – and although Ashley is on her son’s birth certificate, DOMA prohibits her from receiving the ‘paternity’ leave any other military spouse would receive in the event of the birth of a child. She has saved up her personal leave to be able to spend the first weeks of her son’s life at home with him and her wife.”

  1. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your
    weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize
    it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
