Same Sex Marriage Legal Nationwide

Same sex marriage is now legal in all fifty states. Agree or disagree, it is now the law of the Land. We ask you to join us in celebrating this decision on behalf of our GLBT friends and family members who now have the unqualified right to marry. Here is the opinion. It will be read and cited for decades to come. The Entire Case Holding: The right to marry is a fundamental right inherent in the liberty of the person, and under the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment couples of the same-sex may not be deprived of that right and that liberty. Same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry. Baker v. Nelson is overruled. The State laws challenged by the petitioners in these cases are held invalid to the extent they exclude same-sex couples from civil marriage on the same terms and conditions as opposite-sex couples.
