Florida gay wedding

 

 

 

Yesterday, Florida became the 36th state to legalize marriage equality and the first marriages has already taken place.

I had announced you late in the year 2014, Florida was likely to legalize marriage for same-sex couples, the stay on the decision of Judge Robert Hinkle in Tallahassee, who had repealed the marriage equality ban of Florida, coming to an end.

The Supreme Court of the United States also refused to extend this stay as requested by the Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

Congratulations to you all!
