    Marriage equality has been legal in Canada since July 20, 2005, when the Civil Marriage Act was given royal assent. It removed gendered requirements for marriage and declared "a marriage is not void or voidable by reason only that the spouses are of the same sex."

    Canada Post also put out a video documenting the history of the act and profiling some real cute couples.

    It's the fourth in a series being released for Canada's 150th birthday that marks "10 milestones that together have helped shape the story of Canada."
