Last Friday, June 26, the Supreme Court in the US ruled to allow same-sex marriage throughout the United States.

Since 2000, a number of US states have put into law a provision that marriage consists of only one man and one woman.

In 2008, the Cali state Congress also passed same-sex marriage.

Please add that, in the US, marriage licenses are issued by the state.

Before the 2008 vote in Cali, the campaign for Proposition 8 (Prop 8) from both sides was very loud.

I myself also participated in this campaign to oppose Bill No. 8 (ie supporting gay marriage).

On election day 2008, I took a day off from work to participate in the campaign.

Parents driving their children to school met us to advocate for same-sex marriage.

That day was extremely stressful.

A few years later, gays filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that California’s 8th Amendment to the Constitution was unconstitutional.

After several years, the lawsuit reached the US Supreme Court and the court ruled that California’s Law No. 8 was unconstitutional.

Meanwhile, many states have passed laws allowing same-sex marriage through state congressional legislation, by amending state constitutions or by suing state laws as unconstitutional.

By 2015, there were 37 states allowing gay people to marry.

The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution states: `All people are equal before the law and are equally protected by the law.`

The result is as everyone knows.

Canada, the Netherlands, France, England, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Spain, South Africa and many other countries have allowed same-sex marriage for more than a decade, but those countries have not encountered the expected consequences.

For example, heterosexual birth and marriage rates in those countries remained unaffected.

Either way, gay people in America are very happy.

People from all over the world also congratulated.
