NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 27:  U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Shyla Smith and Courtney Burdeshaw hold hands while waiting to get married at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau the day after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on DOMA on June 27, 2013 in New York City. The high court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and ruled that supporters of California's ban on gay marriage, Proposition 8, could not defend it before the Supreme Court.  The pair said they planned to get married today before the ruling came down.  (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
