Eric Holder, the U.S. Attorney General, recently announced that the United States government will recognize, for purposes of federal benefits, presumably including Social Security benefits, same sex marriages performed in Utah during the brief period of time between the date that a U.S. District Court issued an order declaring Utah’s prohibition of same sex marriages unconstitutional and the date that the Supreme Court granted a stay of that order. On the other hand, Social Security will not recognize the same sex marriages of Utah residents if those marriages were solemnized outside Utah!
