            With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the highest court in the land has made history by broadening the legal and cultural understanding of marriage. By doing this, they have granted official legal validation to “non-traditional” couples and families. This definition now must accommodate transsexual and homosexual relationships in addition to heterosexual relationships.
