From left, Robert Roman and Claus Ihlemann, of Virginia Beach, celebrate Thursday's ruling by federal Judge Arenda Wright Allen that Virginia's same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional during a news conference, Friday, Feb. 14, 2014, in Norfolk, Va. Wright Allen on Thursday issued a stay of her order while it is appealed, meaning that gay couples in Virginia still won???t be able to marry until the case is ultimately resolved. An appeal will be filed to the 4th District Court of Appeals, which could uphold the ban or side with Wright Allen.
