Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will become the first Supreme Court member in history to officiate a same-sex marriage at a wedding on Saturday in Washington, D.C.
Ginsburg expressed excitement about conducting the wedding ceremony of Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser and economist John Roberts (not related to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts).
“I think it will be one more statement that people who love each other and want to live together should be able to enjoy the blessings and the strife in the marriage relationship,” Ginsburg said, according to the Washington Post.
“It won’t be long before there will be another [officiated by a Supreme Court justice],” she added.
“I can’t imagine someone I’d rather be married by [than Ginsburg],” Kaiser, who is a close friend of Ginsburg, reportedly said.
The Washington Post notes that Ginsburg is also scheduled to officiate another same-sex wedding in September.
