Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage Nationwide

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday that it is legal for all Americans, no matter their gender or sexual orientation, to marry the people they love.

The decision is a historic victory for gay rights activists who have fought for years in the lower courts. Thirty-seven states and the District of Columbia already recognize marriage equality. The remaining 13 states ban same-sex marriages, even as public support has reached record levels nationwide.
