South Carolina could become the 36th state to legalize marriage equality since the Supreme Court of the United States rejected a request to block same-sex marriages from proceeding.

After the repeal of the ban by Judge Richard Gergel, who blocked his decision for a week, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals refused to block it more.

Attorney General Alan Wilson SC had asked the Supreme Court to the decision of the judge is temporarily blocked but the request failed, he now hopes the Supreme Court will soon negatively decide on the federal equal marriage.
