Same sex marriage headed to the Supremes?
WASHINGTON- There's an emerging consensus that the issue of same sex marriage needs to be decided by the Supreme Court.
Both sides of the issue agree and even one justice thinks the same thing.
Leaders in five states where bans on gay marriage were struck down are rushing to finish appeals to the Supreme Court.
They're trying to meet the deadline of when the justices meet in private to consider cases on September 29.
A final ruling isn't likely before 2015 but when the court could get involved in fast approaching.
The central issue is whether the Constitution forbids states from defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
