In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in several marriage legal cases. A favorable outcome could bring the freedom to marry to same-sex couples nationwide. This spring, Freedom to Marry will continue our work to demonstrate that all of America is ready for the freedom to marry. Learn about marriage at the Supreme Court here.
