Marriage equality has been on the rise for more than a year now and the movement for progress hit a high mark this week when the Supreme Court rejected appeals from five states seeking to ban same-sex marriage.
The Supreme Court rejected appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin,
Delays on marriage in those states were immediately ended, which opens the doors for countless same-sex unions.
Delays in six other states (Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming) have been a hot topic as well, but couples in those states should be able to wed soon enough since those states would be bound by the same appellate rulings that were put on hold pending the Supreme Court’s review.
If those six states legally recognize gay marriage, then same-sex unions will officially be legal in 30 states across the nation, as well as the District of Columbia.
Congratulations to these states that now support marriage equality, and we hope the rest of the states eventually legalize same-sex unions as well. –nicholas robinson
