Virginia’s Recognition of Same-Sex Marriages Put on Hold

Virginia’s Recognition of Same-Sex Marriages Put on Hold

The day before Court Clerks across the Commonwealth were to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in and issued an order staying the enforcement of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Virginia’s ban on gay marriages is unconstitutional. 

Same-sex couples have been granted the right to marry in 19 states and the District of Columbia, and lawsuits are pending in every state where bans remain.

The Supreme Court is expected to finally settle the controversy when its next term begins in October.
