The US Supreme Court has put a temporary hold on same-sex marriage in Utah, until the state appeals an earlier ruling that legalized the unions. The 10th Circuit reportedly has the appeal on fast track and could hear arguments as son as the end of the month. If Utah loses its appeal, the state will likely ask the Supreme Court to intervene, and in so doing might finally take on the constitutionality of state power to limit marriage to heterosexual couples. The Salt Lake Tribune's Brooke Adams considers what this latest ruling means for a thousand same-sex couples who have already tied the knot in Utah and for the future of gay marriage.
