Today the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that all American citizens nationwide have the right to marry. This is a huge victory for same sex citizens in the US and the Mid-South. It’s a huge win for love and equality.
Here’s part of what the Supreme Court had to say:
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the court’s majority opinion. “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 find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
We know that this ruling is a decisive one, especially for this area where strong opinions are held on each side. We hope that everyone remembers that love is a precious gift and one that shouldn’t be under attack. Love wins. We can’t wait to share all the love that will come from this decision and hope to bring you lots of long-awaited engagements and weddings. <3
