It's official! The highest court in the land has announced it will make a decision in what will probably be one of the biggest cases for a long time to come.

[ Related: ​Supreme Court Likely To Review Same-Sex Marriage Bans ]

The U.S. Supreme Court will rule on whether the right to marry is a constitutional right for same-sex couples, or whether states are allowed to ban same-sex marriages.

It's expected that the nine justices will begin hearing oral arguments from both sides in April before delivering a ruling by June.

Back in June of 2013, the court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, a ruling that finally allowed married same-sex couples the same federal benefits as straight married couples.

Before today's announcement, the Supreme Court had petitions from Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky and Michigan after the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld gay marriage bans.

Now, the Supreme court has granted petitions for all four states.

While the Supreme Court had previously refused to hear many same-sex marriage case, lower federal court are divided on whether or not gay marriage bans are legal.

We hope these justices use this to finally rule in favor of equality, and that everyone in American can soon be able to marry whoever they want.

    There is nothing unconstitutional about gay marriage. It is a civil liberty to marry, therefor making it unconstitutional to ban it. End of argument. Next.

    Good. They can finally rule that states have the right to govern themselves. Gay marriage in the blue states, no gay marriage in the red states.

    Consider using a CURRENT photo of the 2015 Supreme Court Justices…missing a couple female faces in the one you've used.

    So long as we are straight on this….marriage is NOT a "right" so what all these people are advocating is for the silencing of the voices of all those In each state who voted against it to push for the undermining of the first and tenth amendments? No wonder liberals love you sheep. Mind you…if the people of a state vote for it? Fine. Using tyranny to get your way? No. it's not about "gay rights". It's about the rule of law.

    Sure give them the right to just as miserable as us married heteros. I'll be curious to see what the divorce rate for gays will end up being.
