In this Friday, March 8, 2013 photo, Sharon Raphael, left, and Mina Meyer, hold their certificates of marriage at their home in Long Beach, Calif. Accountants and attorneys are encouraging married same-sex couples to apply now for retroactive tax refunds and Social Security benefits in anticipation of the Supreme Court possibly overturning a federal law that prevents the federal government from recognizing gay and lesbian unions. At left is their first license and marriage certificate issued by the city and county of San Francisco, which was later invalidated, and at right is their current marriage certificate, issued later by Los Angeles County.
