BREAKING: SCOTUS says same-sex couples have right to marry in all 50 states

WASHINGTON (KTRK) ABC NEWS
The Supreme Court has declared that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States.Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, just as he did in the court’s previous three major gay rights cases dating back to 1996.

Same-sex couples in Texas may soon obtain marriage licenses following Friday’s landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalizes gay marriage nationwide.
