Hip hip… Hooray!

Today the Supreme Court announced its decision that marriage is a fundamental right that should not be denied to same-sex couples.

I am glad to see that the Supreme Court, the highest judicial authority around, has finally sealed the fate of the state laws restricting marriage to heterosexual relationships only. Perhaps now we can finally say that the process, begun over ten years ago, of expanding marriage rights in the United States has reached its goal.

Now we as a nation can perhaps accept that marriage is about more than physical, biological procreation: it is about love, a vow to love one another (theoretically) forever, no matter the consequences. Love of this kind is more than a one-track phenomenon; it is a powerful bond that unites people who care deeply for one another.

Three cheers for marriage equality!
