NPR's Bob Edwards talks to David Cruz, a law professor at the University of Southern California, about the legal issues surrounding gay marriage. In this first part of a two-day discussion, Cruz outlines how civil unions differ from marriages and how an amendment banning same-sex marriages would be different from federal laws already on the books.
