In this June 1, 2011 file photo, Janean Watkins, left, and Lakeesha Harris embrace after being the first in line to obtain a civil union license from the Cook County Office of Vital Records in Chicago. They are among more than two dozen same-sex couples filing lawsuits Wednesday, May 30, 2012, challenging the constitutionality of Illinois’ marriage laws. Advocates for the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois and Lambda Legal are each filing a lawsuit on behalf of the couples. Their goal is to make same-sex marriage legal. (AP Photo/M.
