In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that same sex couples have the nationwide right to marry and states do not have the authority to take that right away.

Social media exploded as supporters of the decision took to Twitter.

One couple in Nebraska decided to mark the occasion with their own wedding.

Celebrities also weighed in on the court’s decision.

President Obama, who has supported same sex marriage since 2012, also made his thoughts known.

In his strangely worded dissent to the majority ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas compared the case to government allowed slavery and internment camps.


And of course, not everyone was happy with the decision.
