US Supreme Court Legalizes Same Sex Marriages

For all those people who have suffered, died, struggled, and been denied — Your day has come. Today marks a day where love triumphs. Every person, every couple, every family shall be treated the same. The decision might not have been unanimous at the Supreme Court, but it was at the Abood Law Firm.
“The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity. The petitioners in these cases seek to find that liberty by marrying someone of the same sex and having their marriages deemed lawful on the same terms and conditions as marriages between persons of the opposite sex.”
The United States Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, ruled today, June 26, 2015 that it is legal for all Americans, no matter their sexual orientation, to get married. The Court held that the 14th Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex.
In closing, Justice Anthony Kennedy eloquently stated:
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 once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to finds its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of the civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.
