Freedom to Marry, a national organization dedicated to marriage equality, has released a video showing the impact of the Defense of Marriage Act on one gay couple.
Titled, "Why Ron is Losing His Home: the Defense of Marriage Act," the slightly more than 2-minute video shares the story of Ron Wallen, 77, after the death of his husband and partner of 58 years, Tom Carrollo.
Carrollo and Wallen were legally married in California in 2008 before Proposition 8 was passed, making it now illegal for same-sex couples to marry. When Carrollo died on March 8, 2011, Wallen lost a source of income that may cause him to have to sell their home.
