Gay marriage arrives in Alabama
MONTGOMERY, AL - Alabama will become the 37th state where gays can legally wed unless the U.S. Supreme Court orders a last-minute stay of a federal judge's decision overturning the state's ban on gay marriage.
Gay couples are expected to seek marriage licenses across the state Monday.
Joe Babin and Clay Jones of Irondale say they will be one of the couples getting married that day. Babin said they want to be part of what he says is a historic day.
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has asked the U.S Supreme Court to extend the stay since justices will consider the issue of gay marriage later this year. As of Saturday, the court had not responded to the state's request.
