The long-awaited day has arrived. As of this morning, the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the same right to marriage as couples comprised of partners of different sexes. SCOTUS found that the Constitution guarantees all couples the right to wed. The 5-4 decision was the result of decades of activism and litigation. It has been a long, hard battle for those who have been unfairly denied the right to marry the person that they love.

Many celebrities took to social media to celebrate the landmark SCOTUS decision. It's a great day in American history. Here's what people had to say about this wonderful step for equality. Today, love is legal for everyone.
