don't ever despair. don't ever give up. don't ever believe a challenge is too big. don't ever believe a hill is too tall to climb. >> crowds gathered on the steps of city hall in san francisco as officials, including former mayor newsom, thanked the supreme court for the decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country. people told us they had been waiting their whole lives it have their relationships recognized and some of them have been on the front lines of this fight for many, many years. back in 2004, steward and john were among the first couples to be married in san francisco. the mayor ordered the city to
9:30 am
begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. about 4,000 marriages were performed during the winter of love, but shortly after that the marriages were declared null and void by the state of california. they then became one of the couples that sued the state for the freedom to marry and in 2008 won that lawsuit and then married again. stuart and john were outside of san francisco's still hall yesterday for the celebration as the supreme court decision came down. this morning we have them in our studio. we are lucky to have them here. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> good to see you. we were just talking, i mean, i imagine right now you are still beaming? >> yes. >> we were just talking about how in 2004 i interviewed you guys at like five in the morning in the dark in front of city hall. and here we are 11 years later. it seems kind of nuts. >> we have all lived to see a
9:31 am
better day. and today in particular it's the first full day of marriage equality in america from coast to coast in all 50 states. that day is today. >> did you guys i mean, you guys were just in a relationship. just wanted to get married. all of a sudden you were part of history. part of the lawsuits. part of the movement. part of something. when you look at how that takes place and the many steps that went forward, what do you think made you guys believe -- and i remember even back in 2004 you had this confidence that change was on its way? >> well, we were just sort of an ordinary couple. we still are. and we realized we wanted our full dignity just like anybody should have as americans. so we showed up for a rally at san francisco city hall in february 2004 for marriage equality. and it happened to be that golden hour that they had just opened the door. we have never stopped. >> turned out to be our wedding day. >> our first wedding day. >> when you look at what the city of san francisco and the
9:32 am
world, you then, then mayor newsom played in starting this, i mean, this was the snowball, right, that started rolling? >> this is about real people. this is not an abstract people. it's about real lives. lives of millions and millions of americans and families. >> so many ways this movement began on the steps of san francisco city hall. the line around the block. the couples who drove all night. stood in the rain. camping out thinking it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. that dream came through today. >> i know in each step of the process as i talked to you through the many years it was going for small victories knowing this was a long road. but this was, i mean, obviously this was the moment. how nervous were you? how confident were you that this is how it would end up? >> we have always believed in the power of love to transform lives. and to be honest, that's what our movement has been about. love and marriage, right?
9:33 am
and that's how popular opinion has completely flipped. >> it has. >> over 60% of americans now support marriage equality. >> let's go back, right? and when you are looking at when you were trying to get popular opinion, i have to tell you when i looked on my facebook page and everyone now has, , you -- they have changed their pictures, regardless of who they are, to have a rainbow theme on it, you have the white house lit up in rainbow colors, you have, you know people mentioning this all over twitter, would you have imagined back in 2004 in terms of the progress you wanted to make, in terms of the change you wanted to make, what it would be so dramatic today? because is it just me or is seems like we have had a ground swell that continued to pick up steam? >> well, we have two wonderful nieces and they were little girls back in 2004. and now they are women. young women. and they are voters. and their facebook pages, they
9:34 am
have put together a montage of actually all the things we have done together as a family. and, you know, it's beautiful. as stuart said, they are voters, too. that's where we make legal and political change because, yeah -- exactly. >> thank you so much for coming in. we wish you a very happy married life. >> that's great. >> thank you. alex. >> yes, we wish them all the best. thank you for coming down to the studio this morning. you know, as you go through the supreme court ruling, i think one of the most talked about parts of the ruling itself was the final paragraph. justice anthony kennedy summed up his support for same-sex marriage by writing, no union is more profound than marriage for it embodied the highest ideals of love, devotion, sacrifice and family. two people become something greater than once they were.
9:35 am
marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. he goes on to say, it would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. their plea is that they do respect it. respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. their hope is not to be condemned, to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilizations oldest institutions. they ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. several gay couples marked the historic occasion by getting married at san francisco's city hall. it's estimated there are 400,000 married couples currently in the u.s. san francisco helped lead the same-sex marriage movement when then mayor gavin newsom directed the city clerk to issue marriage licenses to gay couples back in 2004. the courts halted the weddings just a month later. gay couples said for the first time in their lives they are being recognized by their
9:36 am
country. >> it's truly the fruition of a personal journey for stewart and me. a collective journey for the san francisco community. but a nationwide journey for lbgt americans and our friends and families that has been going on really for decades. >> talking back then. in the studio today. several gay couples are so excited about the future. they predict same-sex marriages will be so common place that people will look back and wonder what all the fuss was about this weekend. and speaking of this weekend, we have rosemary here. what's going on in the city? >> parades. giants. nascar. look at that shot. pretty out there. >> yeah. we are going to have some very comfortable weather in areas. mild inland. we are going to see
