(NECN) - The U.S. Supreme Court has never before agreed to take a serious look at same-sex marriages - and that all changed on Friday.

The Justices will consider two questions: Can the federal government refuse to recognize same-sex marriages in states where it's legal? And what's to become of it in California?

Sue O'Connell is a publisher of Bay Windows, which serves New England's lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender communities. Andrew Beckwith is with the Mass. Family Institute, which firmly opposes same-sex marriage.

Together, they debate how the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on the cases.

Watch the attached video for the complete discussion.
