The ban on same sex marriage may have been lifted, but that doesn’t mean a lot of weddings will soon be taking place. As expected with any controversial legal issue, the United States Supreme Court has stepped in. When an appeal is filed, it can take the wind out of your sails and cause frustration for litigants who thought they had come out on the winning side of a case.
This is the instance for a Florida Keys couple seeking to marry. The story of the case include these facts:
- Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones obtained a favorable ruling in their case to allow them to marry.
- The same sex couple’s victory was immediately appealed by the State.
The appeal set in place an automatic hold on the couple, and any other same sex couples’ attempt to marry. Until a decision is made that affects the nation as a whole, expect to continue to see challenges to decisions allowing same sex marriages.
