The Supreme Court on Monday did not rule on two cases related to gay marriage.

The high court released three opinions on Monday morning. According to SCOTUSblog, no additional rulings are expected until Thursday.

Oral arguments in the cases were heard in March. Most court watchers believe the court will hold off on issuing the opinions until the very end of this year's session, on June 26 or 27.

One case challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, California's gay marriage ban, while the other claims the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prohibits federal agencies from recognizing the legal marriages of gay and lesbian couples, is unconstitutional.

Experts predict that the court will strike down DOMA but a broad ruling is not expected in the Proposition 8 case.

The possible outcomes in Hollingsworth v. Perry vary from a narrow decision allowing the plaintiffs in the case, two gay couples, to marry, to a broad ruling which could affect the entire nation. But more likely, experts say, is a decision that would limit the expansion of such rights to California.
