A Massachusetts state court hears arguments on the constitutionality of a 90-year-old state law that bars the marriage of couples who can't legally marry in their home state. The case was brought by gay rights activists challenging Gov. Mitt Romney's use of the law to bar out-of-state gay couples from marrying in Massachusetts. NPR's Tovia Smith reports.
