Same-Sex Marriage in Michigan?

Couple await court ruling that could open the door for legal marriages in Michigan.
(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.
