The U.S. Senate voted 61-36 Tuesday to protect same-sex and interracial marriages, codifying many of the rights that would disappear if the U.S. Supreme Court were to overturn those landmark decisions. The bill now returns to the U.S. House, where lawmakers expect to give it their final stamp of approval and send it to President Joe Biden. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
