Same-sex marriage has been in talks since ever and ages have passed since there’s nothing done about it. To value love, people’s choice and make sure they have enough rights to live this one life they have got is legit. And guess what? It’s now LEGIT for people out there in US; courtesy US Supreme Court.
Today 26th June, 2015 is a big day because US has legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. All 50 states under US have the right to choose a partner of same sex. Isn’t that amazing? Love has actually won. It took decades and a lot of sour legal battles but finally it has been achieved. It’s a 100 page opinion on how and why it deserves to be legal.
The list of affected states is here: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, most of Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

While the news is spreading like fire, social media is already overflowing with love towards this decision of US Supreme Court. It all started with White House changing its display picture to all the quotes from Obama, Hillary Clinton, Tim Cook and various brands like Kellog’s, Absolut, VISA, Macy’s etc..
I somewhere read a tweet reading, “This is one of the biggest wars America has ever won.” Isn’t this so true? To sum this up, here’s a quote from Justice Anthony Kennedy:
“The nature of injustice is that we may not always see it in our own times.”
I personally think that this is a great step and will inspire a lot of other nations to make them win LOVE. What do you think? 🙂
