The Supreme Court Of United States Of America On Friday Finally Legalized Same Sex Marriage Through Out The Whole World

Before the announcement, only states which had passed the
legalization allowed same-couple marriages but under the new
ruling all 50 states in the country would allow same sex
marriage.
President Barack Obama
The issue of same sex marriage has been led to significant
changes in matrimony laws including a court ruling over 50
years ago that legalized interracial marriage.
This new ruling means the ban on gay marriages in 14 US
states has been cancelled. The states which forbade are
geographically situated in the “Bible Belt” areas of the Southern
US.
Today’s ruling means the decision from Cincinnati’s Sixth
Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the right of states to
maintain “the traditional definition of marriage” has been
cancelled.
A 5-4 decision with the majority opinion written by Justice
Anthony Kennedy made the decision possible.
He wrote of same sex couples: “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.”
The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme
Court debate over marriage, and gay rights generally.
President Obama tweeted after the announcement: “Today is a
big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian
couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else.”
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

According to Fox President Obama spoke to a crowd outside
the supreme court. He called the decision a “victory for
America.”
He added: “When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all
more free.”
Vice-president Joe Biden in a statement said@: “All marriages,
at their root, are about love.”
While same sex marriages re allowed in America, such union
is forbidden in Nigeria. The punishment for such a union or
engaging in sexual relationships with a fellow gender could
earn such an individual 14 years imprisonment.
