Same-sex couples wait - and hope - for U.S. high court marriage ruling
Ronnie Cohen and Sharon Bernstein(Reuters) - The Reverend Paul Mowry, a minister at the Sausalito Presbyterian Church near San Francisco, awoke at 6:30 a.m. Monday, hoping it would be the day the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that would allow him to marry Joe Silverman, his companion of 27 years.
But despite widespread expectations, the court put off releasing its opinions on two key same-sex marriage cases until later this week, leaving Mowry and his partner to wait that much longer.
"It just ratchets up my anxiety and anticipation," Mowry, 51, told Reuters, perched with his laptop on his living room couch after scanning the SCOTUSblog website, a popular online outlet for high-court watchers, without finding a ruling.
