"In my second inaugural address, I said that if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal, as well," President Obama said Friday. "It is gratifying to see that principle enshrined into law by this decision."
In one of the most anticipated decisions of the year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage.
The justices heard arguments on two issues: whether same-sex marriage is a constitutional right and, if not, do states have to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Those questions come from challenges to gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.
