I fucking hate that cop out. A parent was missing, QED, you are now gay. I mean what in the actual fuck. My parents are divorced, I live with my father and his wonderful wife. That didn't make me gay (err, bi rather, eh let's not get into this tirade).

When can we expect the courts to address section 2 of DOMA?

And on a semi-related question, in cases like DOMA and others that address the constitution specifically, how much nit-picking goes on? Is it a regular thing for opponents to try to reword the constitution or find loopholes and vague phrasing to fit their arguments or is it generally a fair series of arguments?

Thanks for the reply! I hadn't considered how past precedent might be considered when courts examine laws, which, looking back, seems kinda obvious.
