The decision came almost two years to the day of when the Supreme Court launched the catalyst for today’s decision. On June 26, 2013, the court, in an opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy, struck down the federal ban on recognition of same-sex couples’ marriages in the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional.
Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins
