Sorry. DOMA is transparently unconstitutional, since it sets up differing legal standards for Gay and Straight couples. DOMA violates both the 14th Amendment and the "Full Faith & Credit" clause. SCOTUS will overturn DOMA by the end of June, no matter how much wailing and gnashing of teeth there is in the Oklahoma House.

"... urging the United States Supreme Court to uphold ... the state of Oklahoma’s right to regulate who can and can't get married here" A decision striking down DOMA would not require states to allow same-sex marriage. In fact, DOMA prevents Oklahoma from regulating who can get married (in the eyes of the fed) in their own state.
