On June 26, 2015, the United States became the 21st nation to legalize same-sex marriage as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Obergelell v. Hodges. The court ruled that the denial of marriage licenses to same-sex couples violated the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The road to this decision was long, and began with the legal battle to overturn Proposition 8 in California.
