NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY/AP) - Hundreds gathered outside the Norfolk Federal Courthouse Tuesday to show their support for marriage quality.
This week, the Supreme Court is hearing cases that could determine the legality of gay marriage.
Wednesday, justices will consider the federal law that prevents legally married gay couples from receiving a range of benefits afforded straight married people.
The issue before the court on Tuesday was more fundamental: Does the Constitution require that people be allowed to marry whom they choose, regardless of either partner's gender? The fact that the question was in front of the Supreme Court at all was startling, given that no state recognized same-sex unions before 2003 and 40 states still don't allow them.
