    FILE - In this Wednesday, July 20, 2011 file photo, Suzanne Artis and Geraldine Artis of Clinton, Conn., hold hands as they attend a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington to assess the impact of the Defense of Marriage Act. The Supreme Court is expected to rule by late June 2013 in two cases involving same-sex marriage. One is a challenge to California's voter-approved Proposition 8 that defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The other seeks to strike down a portion of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that denies to legally married same-sex couples a range of benefits that generally are available to married heterosexuals.

    FILE - In this May 18, 1970 photo provided by The Minnesota Historical Society, Mike McConnell, left, and Jack Baker, both 28, attempt to obtain a Hennepin County marriage license in Minneapolis.

Four decades later, the couple is still together in Minneapolis as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to finally revisit the constitutionality of same-sex marriages.
