Demonstrators on both sides of the issue gather in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on the landmark day the high court began hearing cases on same-sex marriage. The justices will decide if it must be honored in every state.
A 2013 Supreme Court decision upheld gay couples' right to marry, but the ruling didn't require states to recognize marriages performed in other states.
The cases before the court Monday came from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. They are four of the 14 states that don't allow same-sex marriage.
Opponents argue the Supreme Court shouldn't discard the votes of states which define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
The high court isn't expected to rule until June. New Hampshire's already voted in same-sex marriage, as is the case in all New England states.
Here's a list of when each New England state voted in gay marriage legislation:
New Hampshire: 2009.
Rhode Island: 2013.
