Supreme Court Rules Gay Marriage Legal in All 50 States

gay marriage

Same-sex couples have been fighting for their right to legally wed for decades. Within the past 10 years, they’ve seen their dreams come to fruition in a few select states such as New York, New Jersey, California, Florida and Massachusetts, which was the first American state to legalize gay marriage. But Friday (June 26), in a 5 to 4 ruling, the Supreme Court declared that the Constitution requires that same-sex couples have the right to marry regardless of their place of residence, as reported by The Washington Post.

What does that mean? No state may reserve the right to wed to heterosexual couples only, so yeah: gay marriage is officially legal in all 50 states!

Thoughts?
