Broward Circuit Court Judge Dale Cohen declared the ban unconstitutional. This decision follows the case of two women who wanted to divorce, registered in a civil union in Vermont since 2002, they couldn't divorce because of the marriage equality ban in Florida. They therefore brought their case before a court on 4 August.
Judge Cohen, however, suspended his decision pending an appeal, but in another state, the same decision of a judge is also on hold until January 5. If no appeal is made by that date, the same-sex couples could get marriage licenses from January 6, previously married couples will be recognized by the state of Florida and the female couple can finally divorce.
