Marriage Equality upheld by US Supreme Court by a vote of 5-4

In a landmark 5-4 decision, the US Supreme Court voted that marriage equality is protected by the constitution, meaning it is now legal in all 50 states.
President Obama tweeted showing support for the ruling from both the @POTUS account and the separate @BarackObama account.

This legal landmark comes 11 years after Massachusetts became the first state to recognize same same-sex marriage. Now, across the United States, and the world, people are celebrating another step towards equality.

Although ruling does not take effect immediately (the opposing side has three weeks to ask for reconsideration), this is still a MAJOR decision in regards to making marriage legal for everyone. The next goal will probably to tackle those states who still refuse to give equal benefits to gay couples.


Today America got a little bit more equal and I cannot wait to see what is coming next!
