    Same-sex couples react to Supreme Court rulings

    Historic Day for Same Sex couples

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Sadiemae22 and her partner live in Florida, where same-sex marriage is not legally recognized, but says the Supreme Court ruling is 'validation of our relationship.' Living under the Defense of Marriage Act made her an 'outcast amongst our coworkers and neighbors because we didn't "count" as a couple.' Now, she says, 'we have a chance to open the door in Florida, based on the ruling.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    24 years and 11 months - how long we have waited to have our relationship validated by this country.
