"The US Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex marriage is a legal right across the United States. It means the 14 states with bans on same-sex marriage will no longer be able to enforce them. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the plaintiffs asked "for equal dignity in the eyes of the law."

On BBC News in June of 2015 they introduced that the US Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is legal nationwide. This news article tells about the reaction of the announcement and the opinions of many who are in favor of same-sex marriages. President Obama focuses on how this ruling is a "victory for America" and how each American deserves to be treated equally. He said, "When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free."

Is that statement really true? Does allowing anyone and everyone to marry really make us all more free? This is a question that is pending throughout the minds of every american. Is this law leading our nation back to success? What effect will this have on the UNITED states? Are we all really united?

Although many are celebrating and many marriages are taking place, many americans feel that their voices are not being heard because of the overrule of the Supreme Court. President Obama said that this ruling will strengthen our communities but is that really what is happening?

Personally I feel that this is an issue that is and will continue to tear our nation apart. States aren't being heard and their opinions aren't being considered. People in smaller communities are going ignored. It's time to find a balance.
