FULL TEXT SUPREME COURT OPINION: Justices Make Marriage Legal For All Couples Across U.S.

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

oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the
eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right
