Meeting behind closed doors on Friday, the nine justices decided to review a 2-1 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit that upheld bans on same-sex marriage in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee. The decision by two judges on the Cincinnati-based court, both appointed by President George W. Bush, marked the first time a federal appeals court backed a same-sex marriage ban after other appellate courts had found similar bans unconstitutional.

Take a look at these crucial two questions the court will be addressing when they hear this case...

The court said it would specifically address two questions: Does the 14th Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex? And does the 14th Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?

This path all started in 2013 when parts of the Defense of Marriage Act were struck down. This is the next logical step in the battle, which we have been hoping for. These decision may very well end the debate in this country forever, and legalize same sex marriage across the board. And the decision might come in June, which is Pride month. Wow...
