Same-sex marriage in USA

On June 26, the U.S. Supreme Court rules all state bans on same-sex marriage unconstitutional – thus allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry in all 50 states.

A deeply divided Supreme Court on Friday delivered a historic victory for gay rights, ruling 5 to 4 that the Constitution requires that same-sex couples be allowed to marry no matter where they live. Marriages began Friday in states that had previously thwarted the efforts of same-sex couples to wed, while some states continued to resist what they said was a judicial order that changed the traditional definition of marriage and sent the country into uncharted territory.

Public support for same-sex marriage recently was at a record high. A 57 percent majority of Americans said they supported allowing gay marriage, and 39 percent opposed the issue. As recently as five years ago, only 42 percent of residents said they favored same-sex marriage.

Social media and commentators are filled with glee as the Supreme Court of the United States rules that same-sex marriage should be recognized in all 50 states of our country. With the new law, the wedding ring sales in U.S.A will expected to have a jump increase in 2015 summer and fall.
