Seattle gay-rights advocate and journalist Dan Savage (L), and Terry Miller sort through roses on the steps of City Hall after getting married at Seattle City Hall in Seattle, Washington December 9, 2012. Washington made history last month as one of three U.S. states where marriage rights were extended to same-sex couples by popular vote, joining Maryland and Maine in passing ballot initiatives recognizing gay nuptials.
