Supreme Court says ‘I do’ to same sex marriage

Wash. — A big decision out of Washington DC tonight, as the Supreme Court says ‘I do’ to the debate over same sex marriage.

The nine justices will determine whether gay couples have the constitutional right to get hitched or if states can ban same-sex marriage.

Gay marriages are currently legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia; lower federal courts nationally are split on the issue.

Analysts say that is probably why the Supreme Court is taking it on; a final decision on the matter could come by summer.

In 2013, the justices said legal gay couples should get the same federal benefits as heterosexual couples.
