The Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex partners have a constitutional right to marry, sweeping away state bans on gay unions and extending marriage equality nationwide. Same-sex couples now have a constitutional right to marry nationwide, the U.S. Supreme Court said in a historic ruling that caps the biggest civil rights transformation in a half-century. Voting 5-4, the justices said states lack any legitimate reason to deprive gay couples of the freedom to marry. The ruling is a legal landmark, on par with the 1967 Supreme Court decision that guaranteed interracial couples the right to wed. Although this decision is long past overdue, the Supreme Court had to shift through a lot of information from both sides of the argument. Thankfully, the Supreme Court has realized that marriage is about love, not about gender. With marriage equality for all, Filthy Gorgeous Media has compiled ten reasons that might have swayed the Supreme Court to rule in favor of gay marriage.
