As of Friday, June 26 2015, it is now legal for all Americans, no matter what their sexual orientation or gender, to marry the person they love.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Friday morning that this law be instated in all 50 states. The law is listed under the 14th Amendment and cites that couples will receive equal protection and due process.
Extending the right to marry protects families and “without the recognition, stability, and predictability marriage offers, children suffer the stigma of knowing their families are somehow lesser,” the justices wrote this morning.
