Couples, officials, foes readying for US gay marriage ruling

CINCINNATI (AP) - Gay couples are making wedding plans despite home-state bans. Marriage license bureaus are staffing up for potential rushes. And opponents of same-sex marriage are exploring their options as the nation awaits a decisive ruling from the Supreme Court.

The justices are expected to announce their decision any day now. If they rule against state laws limiting marriage to heterosexual couples, couples in states where same-sex marriage is banned say they're ready to end their wait.

One Cincinnati couple plans to head immediately to the courthouse. A Tennessee pastor plans to perform multiple weddings within days.

License bureaus say they're preparing for anything. And opponents say they will continue to defend their definition of traditional marriage.
