19 Texts LGBT People Just Received Prove What This Moment Really Means

On Friday morning, history took place on the steps of the Supreme Court.

And in our texts.

The court's verdict legalizing same-sex marriage in the United States is a watershed moment for basic human rights, and one that will have an effect on relationships all over the country. While the excitement of the moment exploded at the foot of the Supreme Court, countless more people quickly took to their smartphones to celebrate the news with the people in our lives we love most.

Boyfriends, girlfriends, friends and family members could hardly contain their excitement as many LGBT people came to the revelation that for the first time ever, they'll no longer have to worry about whether or not they'll be able to marry the person they love, in the state they love.

The energy in these exchanges are indicative of a collective, nationwide explosion of joy, punctuated with plenty of rainbow emojis, and a reminder that no matter who you love, relationships are universal.

There's no such thing as "gay marriage" anymore. It's just marriage.

Now, watch the wedding planning texts start to fly:
