Obergefell v. Hodges - 2 Years

Rate this Entry
Today marks the second anniversary of many same-sex marriages and of the US Supreme Court decision in the case Obergefell v. Hodges. That decision allowed, in the United States, nationwide legal gay marriage. As a bisexual person myself, I am immensely happy that that this decision went the way it did. While America is not the world, I believe it was a great step forward for the country I love. Since June 26th, 2015, the following countries have legalized gay marriage through some means:

July 15th, 2015 - Puerto Rico
August 29th, 2015 - Republic of Ireland
April 7th, 2016 - Colombia
April 29th, 2016 - Faroe Islands
July 22nd, 2016 - Isle of Man
March 1st, 2017 - Finland
May 2nd, 2017 - Guernsey
May 5th, 2017 - Bermuda
May 24th, 2017 - Taiwan

Of course, plenty of countries, individual provinces or states have legalized some form of same-sex unions/marriages before and after America's Supreme Court ruling. Plenty of individual states in Mexico, for example, have legalized same-sex marriages in surprisingly landslide votes.

If you are someone who disagrees with same-sex marriages for any reason, you are not hated. I do however hope that you will come to see that the world will not change for the worse in the coming years. Marriage will remain as sacred and treasured. The world is not turning gay. By at least tolerating these changes or decisions or legislation, you're helping making millions of couples worldwide very happy. So keep being awesome.
