The day that the US Supreme Court announced their decision recognizing the constitutional right of same-sex couples to marry—June 26, 2015—was a very good day, both personally and professionally.

 

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family… It 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…They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right." – US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
