Gay couples in Michigan go from elation to a state of limbo
That's the status of same-sex couples in Michigan who had hoped to marry after last Friday's ruling from federal judge Bernard Friedman, a ruling that struck down Michigan's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.
More than 300 couples rushed to speak their vows on Saturday before the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay of Judge Friedman's ruling until appeals proceedings conclude.
And now we have heard from Gov. Rick Snyder about those couples. He said the state will not recognize those marriages.
