Advocates of same-sex marriage in Connecticut are celebrating the Supreme Court ruling that strikes down the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8. Both banned gay marriage.
Beth Kerrigan was the lead plaintiff in the Kerrigan v. The State of Connecticut, a case that struck down a Connecticut law banning same-sex marriage,
Kerrigan says she is "overwhelmed" and "ecstatic" about the ruling.
She says with the Supreme Court ruling, her marriage to Jody Mock means a lot more now, than it did earlier this week.
