Three major historical events took place this week throughout the years: the Supreme Court of the United States was officially established in 1789; the Little Rock Nine attended their first full day of classes at Central High School in Little Rock, AR in 1957 and Sandra Day O’Connor took the Oath of Office to become the first female Supreme Court justice of the United States in 1981.
Back in 2015, I really felt like the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage was a conclusion. In a way, it was. After years of progress on the issue, it was suddenly legal everywhere. Full acceptance of same-sex couples, both socially and legally, seemed inevitable to me at the time. In hindsight I was incredibly naive.
