Supreme Court Ruled in Favor for Same-Sex Marriage Nationwide

In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court on July 26th ruled that same-sex couples can now marry nationwide. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority while the four conservative justices wrote the dissent.

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were,” Kennedy wrote.

The U.S. is now the 21st country to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide. Married same-sex couples will now have the same legal rights and benefits as married heterosexual couples. Thousands of same-sex marriage supporters have been celebrating just moments after the ruling.
