U.S. Supreme Court approves Gay Marriage on 5-4 vote

FILE - In this April 28, 2015, file photo, demonstrators stand in front of a rainbow flag of the Supreme Court in Washington, as the court was set to hear historic arguments in cases that could make same-sex marriage the law of the land. Gay and lesbian couples could face legal chaos if the Supreme Court rules against same-sex marriage in the next few weeks. Same-sex weddings could come to a halt in many states, depending on a confusing mix of lower-court decisions and the sometimes-contradictory views of state and local officials. Among the 36 states in which same-sex couples can now marry are 20 in which federal judges invoked the Constitution to strike down marriage bans. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)

The U.S. Supreme Court rules on gay marriage is constitutional.

Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex.

Reporters from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution are getting reaction from around Metro Atlanta and the state. Stay tuned for updates throughout the day.
