Each morning the U.S. Supreme Court convenes in Washington D.C., hundreds of people wait patiently on the steps outside.

They're there for the decision on the issue of same-sex marriage and the legality of California's Prop. 8 and the wait goes on.

"It’s OK, it’s been a long process and it’s worth the wait," plaintiff Kris Perry said. "We think we'll see something good happen."

If Prop. 8 is shot down, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera said there will be a 25-day waiting period until same-sex marriages can take place in San Francisco.
