Miami Marriages Start @ 2PM!

Judge Zabel has lifted her stay and same sex marriages are set to commence in Miami-Dade County at 2 p.m.!
Miami-Dade County will become the first place in Florida to allow same-sex couples to marry on Monday, 13 hours before a gay-marriage ban that has been ruled unconstitutional is lifted in the rest of the state. 
In an 11 a.m. hearing, Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel lifted the legal stay she had placed on her sweeping July decision declaring the ban discriminatory. Clerk of Courts Harvey Ruvin said same-sex marriages would begin at 2 p.m. 
Elsewhere in Florida, most court clerks will start marrying gay couples Tuesday — some of them at 12:01 a.m. — following a federal judge’s order. 
For anyone with questions on the when, where, and how, Equality Florida has put together a FAQ that covers a lot.

Thanks judge! XO

Update: Here's the actual moment! #HappyHappyJoyJoy

Thank you, Judge Zabel. I'm getting my license this week, after the crowds thin a bit (if they do!)

i wonder how many of the marriages this week will be due to traditional marriage reasons . . .love, security, finances etc, and how many will be due to the current euphoria of mainstream acceptance and which in the long run will last longer.

Good advice!


Interesting question! It's human nature that nothing makes us want something so much as being told we can't have it.

That is really great. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if the hot blond started lezing out rather than just giving the other girl an appropriately respectful and restrained hug.

Very mature, @6:52 a.m.

I'm not offended by your sentiment, but I have some lesbian friends who think that the idea of their intimacy existing for the pleasure of men is a blasphemy!

Watch out for their power tools.
