The U.S. Supreme Court plunged into the contentious issue of gay marriage on Friday when it agreed to take up California's ban on same-sex unions and a separate dispute about federal benefits for legally married gay couples. Iowans on both sides of the issue reacted with equal measure of excitement and trepidation.
