President Barack Obama Tweeted his support of the ruling, using the hashtag #LoveWins, which quickly began trending after the news broke.
Before today's groundbreaking ruling, same-sex marriages were only allowed in 36 states. "America should be very proud," Obama said during a press conference Friday morning. "When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free."
Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins— President Obama (@POTUS) June 26, 2015
We couldn't agree more and are thrilled about this news! Happy Friday, indeed.
