When U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage on June 26, 2015, several celebrities across the states were relieved.
Many same-sex couples, whose countries ban the act, rushed off to the United States to legalize marriage.
However, there have been many couples who were engaged and married to same-sex people even before many of the states across the nation approved it.
During the past decades, the number of same-sex couples has increased. This indicates that the world is evolving to enrich the culture by combing all the traditions.
