Hollywood celebrates SCOTUS decision: Guess who's getting hitched?

It's no secret that many in Hollywood support same-sex marriage, and there was plenty of social media cheering going on Wednesday after the Supreme Court decisions.

There was also a celeb engagement announcement, and a proposal.

Melissa Etheridge used the historic moment as an opportunity to announce that she plans to marry her partner, Linda Wallem.

"I look forward to exercising my American civil liberties and getting fully, completely and legally married this year to my true love of over three years, Linda Wallem," Etheridge said in a statement. "Once again our constitution stands strong. All men, and women, and everything in between are created equal."

Lena Dunham's keeping her fingers crossed that she's going to nab an invite to someone's wedding soon. She said in a series of supportive tweets:

Actors and new parents Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have been engaged for more than two years, but the couple's previously said they wouldn't marry until their gay friends were legally allowed to. So on Wednesday, Bell popped the question - again - to Shepard.

Shepard enthusiastically responded:

She wasn't the only star who took to Twitter with comment:

It should be a man and a woman.. it is the essence of a family and a family is not made without a man and a woman becoming as one and bare children... No offense to you guys..

    On April 15, (tax day) 2013 I married my Partner of 19 years David Cammack. Today is the proudest day I've experienced as an American and the most amazing day as a gay American! I hope both sides can move forward with civility and conciliation!

    Finally in 2013, ALL people have equal rights under Federal law. This has always been an equal rights issue for me. The Declaration of Independence states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." I see nothing in that statement that excludes any group of people. So, why did it take so long for the g ay community to be treated like the rest of society? Could it possibly be due to hatred? And for those of you who think this is going to tear at the fabric of marriage, why would you even think that? You love who you love. If you want to spend your life with that person, it is none of anyone's business, but your own. How on earth will that effect you and your marriage anyway? Again, this has always been an equal rights issue for me, and I'm glad that they finally struck down this law.

      OK, so why does it matter what grade of status marriage is in our government? Why is the government handing out privileges and incentives because two people are married? Is there a reason other than religiously backed motivating factors? So, now we have to sit here and have more money, time, etc wasted over court cases, debates, bills, etc, to define what is included as allowed married parties to receive privileges? How about all people are taxed, benefitted, etc equal?!?!?!? Then, we would not have to listen to ignorant statements like Sokoman, who are not partiotic, because he is not respecting the original American stance on separating church and state, making us who lean to the Right, yet actually educated, look bad.

    You’re an idiot, Adam. The reason pedophilia is illegal is because it involves an innocent, unwilling and underage victim. H o m o s e x u a l i t y involves willing participants, not victims. You’re comparing apples to oranges, just like your bigoted brethren who drag b e s t i a l i t y into the conversation.

    Whether or not it’s a “perversion” is a matter of opinion, but the only perverts in the dialog seem to be you right wingers and your sick imaginations.
