Today the world can congratulate those in America who once were banned from being true to their hearts. It has been voted in the Supreme Court that same sex marriages is now legal nationwide. Many states who still had same sex marriages classed as illegal will have to make instant changes to follow with this new ruling.
After many, may years of fighting for the respect and freedom to follow their hearts in to marriage the US Supreme court has finally granted couples to marry regardless of gender, with a 5-4 vote.
Justice Kennedy said gay and lesbian couples had a fundamental right to marry.
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family,” he wrote. “In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
“It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage,” Justice Kennedy said of the couples challenging state bans on same-sex marriage. “Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
So Congratulations to all the Gay and Lesbian couples in America right now who can finally acknowledge their love in the sanctity of marriage, I wish you all happy and love filled future.
Equality For All
