US Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage

The US Supreme Court has declared same-sex marriage legal all across the country, completely nullifying the bans which several of the 50 states had enacted.
Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority decision stating: "No union is more profound than marriage. Under the Constitution, same-sex couples seek in marriage the same legal treatment as opposite-sex couples, and it would disparage their choices and diminish their personhood to deny them this right."
The President Barack Obama has already spoken about the matter, calling the aforementioned decision "a victory of America".
