The road to marriage equality in the United States has been arduous, but these couples prove that love cannot be restrained by legislation alone. In fact, these Hollywood duos use their fame to call attention to the human rights issues nearest to their hearts ... and what could be more honorable than that?
The struggle for the gay community to be allowed the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts has been an uphill battle for hundreds of years. Although once upon a time in some corners of the world, homosexuality was viewed as normal behavior, it eventually evolved into something that society decided was evil, and those who were gay were denied basic human rights.
"Your dad is gay!" my friend spat out one day when we were in a fight. It was as if she were accusing me of something horrible. I was nine at the time. That night, I confronted my mother. "Heather said Dad is gay. He's not, right?" She paused—a long pause—that confirmed my worst fear. I felt betrayed. "How could my dad do this to me? And more importantly, what was I going to tell my friends?"
From Pres. Barack Obama expressing his support for gay marriage in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC's Good Morning America, to the struggle to repeal Proposition 8 in California, to the misleadingly-named Defense of Marriage Act being ruled unconstitutional, it's been a game-changing year in gay marriage rights.
A monumental ruling by the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston today declared the Defense of Marriage Act, the national law that declared marriage as a union "between one man and one woman," unconstitutional. The ruling sets the stage for DOMA to be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, which could lead to federal approval of same-sex marriages.

Well, well, well — how the mighty have fallen! Or at least the semi-mighty. Just one day after President Obama voiced his support of same-sex marriage, Mitt Romney's dark past has come back to haunt him. Could this be a little karmic retaliation for opposing gay marriage, Mitt?
"I could never be a politician. But as uncomfortable as I would be doing so, I have no problem with Obama's long-planned 'change of heart.' This dude's made huge, measurable strides for gay rights, and if being coy about his plans for gay marriage for a few years was needed to get him elected, then so be it. LGBT persons will be better off, and federal same-sex marriage recognition will come sooner because of it."
President Obama stunned the nation yesterday by announcing that he supports gay marriage. This is the first time in history that a U.S. President has come out in support of the controversial topic. Celebrities immediately took to Twitter to react to the groundbreaking news.
We all knew that President Barack Obama backed gay marriage in philosophy a long time ago.
