US Supreme Court to rule on gay marriage

THE US Supreme Court will rule this year on whether gay couples have a right to marry across all states.

In a brief order, it said it would hear cases about marriage bans upheld by an appeals court covering four states.

But a high court ruling could decisively end all gay marriage bans.

The court previously struck down a US law preventing federal recognition of marriages in states allowing same-sex unions. After appeals court rulings since then, 14 state bans remain.

Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia now issue marriage licences to same-sex couples.
