Yes. On May 9, 2012, President Obama announced that he supports same-sex marriage, three days after Vice President Biden suddenly announced that he was "perfectly comfortable" with marriage equality, and believed that gay men and lesbians should have the same marriage rights as heterosexuals. The president explained that he had "evolved" on the issue, and that his wife and daughters encouraged him to change his view.

President Obama now favors the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) because "federal law should not discriminate in any way against gay and lesbian couples, which is precisely what DOMA does." In the past, Mr. Obama had stated that he was opposed to same-sex marriage, a view he continued to express when he was campaigning for the presidency in 2008. He had stated previously that his religious belief led him to a traditional view of marriage, that it should be between a man and a woman only. On the other hand, Mr. Obama did support civil unions at that time. It should also be noted that although the president now supports marriage equality, he does not believe religious institutions should be forced to perform ceremonies that run counter to their beliefs. What he supports is civil marriage.
