"Windsor, who worked as an IBM programmer for most of her life, married Spyer in Canada and cared for her after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the late 1970s. They lived for more than four decades in New York’s Greenwich Village. When Spyer died in 2009, she left all of her property to Windsor. Because they were married in 2007, Spyer’s estate normally would have passed to Windsor as her spouse without any estate tax at all. ”Had Ms. Windsor been married to a man, rather than a woman, she would not have had to pay any federal estate tax at all,” says Windsor’s lawyers in a statement." -phillymag.com
