MUSE Agenci celebrates today's profound ruling which delivers justice on marriage equality.
“No union is more powerful than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. 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 judgement of the Court of Appeals for Sixth Circuit is reversed. It is so ordered.”
- Justice Anthony Kennedy
