The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule soon on same-sex marriage.

The two questions before the court,

1) Does the Constitution require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex?

2) Does the Constitution require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?

The court’s decision will have repercussions throughout the country, and Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage is one of the laws being challenged.

Here are some of the numbers behind the case (if the graphic below doesn't load for you, go here"):
