For people who are in same-sex partnerships, the right to have marriage equality is a very real concern. With each passing day, it seems as though same-sex couples are being put on a roller coaster that doesn't have an end in sight. For those who live in Colorado, a recent stay issued by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals means that the roller coaster ride is going to continue for at least a little while longer.
Had the stay not been issued by the court, same-sex couples in Colorado could have been married starting on Aug. 25. The stay means that same-sex marriages as well as same-sex divorces in the state will be hold until a new ruling comes down.
