Same sex marriages temporarily blocked in Utah

UTAH -- Gay couples were able to get married in Utah for two weeks but as of Tuesday same sex marriages are on hold.

The United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of the state's request to temporarily block same-sex marriages.

Some want the marriages that already took place to be revoked and while advocates are disappointed they claim the courts are on their side.

"We consider we're on the right side of history here. We're on the right side of love. We're on the right side of love, of the constitution," said John Netto of the Pride Center of Utah.

Hundreds of gay couples have tied the knot since December 20th when a district court judge said the state's law banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
