(WDIV) As mothers to three beautiful adopted children, April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse view themselves as an average family, but they say the law says otherwise.
They filed a lawsuit last year challenging Michigan's voter-approved ban on gay marriage.
"It's about legal rights that every heterosexual couple has," said DeBoer.
A U.S. district judge could issue a ruling Wednesday in their case on whether the state's ban violates the U.S. Constitution.
Should the judge lift the ban and decline to issue a stay while it's being appealed, same-sex marriage would be legal in Michigan until a higher court overturns it. That could be for a matter of days or perhaps just hours.
