The US state of Florida is to join the growing list of states to allow same sex marriages. 

The Supreme Court handed down the decision yesterday, denying a request by the state of Florida to put same-sex marriages on hold pending the outcome of appeal to the Eleventh Circuit. According to the order, Justices Scalia and Thomas would grant the stay.

The decision is a result of an earlier one in which the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta struck down Florida’s ban on smae sex marriage.
