Spain’s highest court ruled today that the Spanish Constitution protects same-sex marriage, which has been legal since 2005, ThinkProgress reports. Conservative groups and the Catholic Church had appealed the original ruling shortly after it was made into law, despite a majority of Spaniards approving of marriage equality. More than 20,000 legal same-sex unions have taken place in Spain since 2005.
