The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals refused to extend a stay on marriages for same-sex couples in Florida, the court announced yesterday. The stay expires at the end of the day on January 5, meaning that same-sex couples should be free to receive marriage licenses after that. Evan Wolfson from Fredom to Marry says: “The 11th Circuit did the right thing today by refusing to delay marriages for same-sex couples in Florida any longer. As the first joyful weddings take place, Floridians will see firsthand that the freedom to marry helps families and communities, and harms no one. And against this backdrop of happy families and more marriages, we hope the court soon hands down a final ruling that ensures that all committed couples in the Sunshine State, as well as Georgia and Alabama, finally have the freedom to marry the person they love.”
