Same-sex marriage becomes legal in California next week — again. Many couples were married in 2004 only to have their marriages nullified by the Supreme Court. We hear from three gay couples planning to tie the knot for the second time.

Then, Madeleine Brand speaks with Pastor Chris Clark of East Clairmont Southern Baptist Church in San Diego about his efforts to pass a constitutional amendment in California banning same-sex marriage.

Finally, Alex Cohen talks to Yale University historian George Chauncey about why marriage has become the focal point of the gay rights movement.
