Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones will finally be able to marry — at midnight on Tuesday.
The Key West bartenders filed suit against Florida's marriage ban in April, prompting the lawsuit that wended its way through the courts and finally — after major objections from the governor and attorney general — found success late last year. As same-sex couples marry in Miami-Dade County, the gay fantasia known as Key West will see their first weddings at midnight, with Huntsman and Jones among the first in line; about 100 marriage licenses will be issued early Tuesday at the Monroe County clerk's office.
"I'm a big ball of nerves right now," Jones said in a statement. "My stomach is in knots — but I'm so happy that I finally get to marry him."
