Same-sex marriage debate divides family

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court is schedule to hear the case against Proposition 8 - the California law that banned same-sex marriage. And on Wednesday, the high court takes on the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

A new CNN poll shows a majority of Americans, 57% - have a family member or close friend who is gay. That number is up from 45% in 2007.

As our Kyung Lah found out, this polarizing and personal issue of same-sex marriage is bringing families together - and tearing them apart.
