Will The Supremes Be Getting Gay Married Today?

Breaking News Update: The Supreme Court of the United States issued 3 opinions today, and did not release their ruling in the pending gay marriage cases. They will announce decisions on Monday and Thursday of next week, and could announce their decision on Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor on either day.

I know that a lot of people, myself included, are anxious to know when and how the Supreme Court will rule in the gay marriage cases.  

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS)  has 14 cases pending, where they haven’t released their opinion. It is expected that they will announce some decisions today at 10am EDT, and according to scotusblog, they will make all of their announcements by either June 26th or June 27th, 2013.

I wish I could foresee how the court will rule in the California Proposition 8 case Hollingsworth v. Perry, and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) case United States v. Windsor, but my crystal ball has a major malfunction that precludes me from speculating with any confidence.

While I wish the Court would embrace marriage equality wholeheartedly, and issue sweeping rulings that would permit gay marriages in every state in the union, I know that it’s doubtful that my wish will be fulfilled. If there's no news this week, we will definitely know next week.

Stay tuned.
