Gay US couples continue to face challenges

Same-sex marriage may be legal in seven states, but it is far from the law of the land.

    Supporters of same-sex marriage in the United States are celebrating their latest triumphs, after the state of Washington and the District of Columbia both passed legislation legalising it.

    Washington became the seventh state to do so. Gay marriage, however, is still a long way from becoming the law of the land.

    Al Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports from Washington, DC.
