“No union is more profound 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 once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. 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. 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 the Sixth Circuit is reversed. It is so ordered.“
With the ban on gay marriage lifted nationwide after Friday’s Supreme Court ruling, couples around the US are celebrating, and rightly so. The LGBT community has been actively fighting for equality for nearly 46 years since the New York riot. So, after over four and half decades, the right to marry, no matter what your sexual orientation, is finally here.
At Invitations by Ajalon we couldn’t be happier. We have been working with same-sex couples for years, and with gay marriage now legal across the nation, we look forward to working with more in the future.
