An emotional roller coaster for couples across Idaho Wednesday as hundreds of same-sex couples thought they would be getting married only to have a last minute stay put their nuptials on hold.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy issued the stay, at the request of Governor Butch Otter, blocking same sex marriage in the Gem State just one day after the 9th Circuit Court of of Appeals made a ruling that essentially lifted the state's roadblock against same sex marriage.
While some are in agreement with Otter's quick action, others say this is a waste of time and resources and its just a matter of time before same-sex marriage will officially be allowed.
It's really sad to me that our governor wants to continue to put money towards this effort denying people their rights and essentially legalizing discrimination by doing so," PFLAG board member Juli Stratton said.
Stratton and her partner did not want to wait for Idaho to legalize same sex marriage so they went somewhere else to tie the knot.
