Among the plaintiffs are a Harrisburg couple, one widow, nine other couples and one of the couples' two teenage daughters. The plaintiffs include four couples who were legally married in other states, but whose marriages go unrecognized by the state of Pennsylvania.

of 50 family members and friends in 2007. They want to be legally married

because they want the same legal protections other couples enjoy. Every time they

have to check the "single" box on a form, it feels demeaning to their relationship.

And it would mean a lot to their relatives for them to marry. Moreover, Dawn and

Diana's five-year-old son is beginning to understand what marriage is. He asks a

lot of questions, and they struggle to come up with a way to explain to him why his

parents aren't allowed to get legally married.
