“No longer may this liberty be denied,” said Justice Anthony Kennedy. (source: Associated Press)
Justice Anthony Kennedy, seen as a pivotal swing vote in the case, wrote the majority opinion. All four justices who voted against the ruling wrote their own dissenting opinions: Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. (source: npr.org)
In the majority opinion, Kennedy again pointed to the idea that marriage was such a longstanding part of humanity, but he framed that differently, pointing out that the men and women who wanted the right to get married were only seeking to join this institution. (source: WashingtonPost)

What this means to international organizations that employ married members of the LGBT community?
“Adjusting all guidelines, policies and begin extending the benefits due to american married couples; must be dealt with at the earliest to accommodate this most recent constitutional rights of same-sex couples”, said Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Founder of ReloNavigatorSM & Chair of IBBAsSM
