Mark in his Facebook post said “Our country was founded on the promise that all people are created equal, and today we took another step towards achieving that promise. I’m so happy for all of my friends and everyone in our community who can finally celebrate their love and be recognised as equal couples under the law. We still have much more to do to achieve full equality for everyone in our community, but we are moving in the right direction.”

Twitter also voiced its support, as it allows you to automatically create a tiny rainbow heart when you tweet with the hashtag #LoveWins.
