A judge in Utah made history Friday, striking down the parts of Utah law that made polygamy illegal.

Not surprisingly, the ruling made a massive impact online, where people headed to express their thoughts and reactions to the ruling. I've compiled a few of those responses in the gallery above.

The first few are from the Brown family themselves, as well as their lawyer. Later tweets come from others who chimed in. Also, the responses are varied; many people on Twitter seemed pleased by the decision but I did see a few criticizing it, so that perspective is represented as well.
