The U.S. Supreme Court is delaying the start of same-sex marriage in Virginia, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports from the Associated Press. The court today granted a request from a county clerk in northern Virginia to block same-sex marriages across the state while the issue is being appealed to the Supreme Court. The court provided no explanation for its order. Without court intervention, same-sex couples would have been allowed to wed as of Thursday.
