|1. Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage nationwide
|The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Friday that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. In the historic ruling for gay rights, the court declared that same-sex couples have the right to marry in all 50 states, and that states no longer have the right to ban gay couples from marrying. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, joined by the court’s four liberal justices. “Today we can say, in no uncertain terms, that we made our union a little more perfect,” President Obama said.
