With a trial court ruling on hold, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says that the same-sex couples who married over the weekend have legal marriages but that the state will not recognize them currently.
After District Court Judge Bernard Friedman found Michigan’s ban on same-sex couples’ marriage unconstitutional on March 21, dozens of couples flocked to local Courthouses to get married.

Update: After a day of same-sex weddings, a federal appeals court put weddings on hold until at least Wednesday.
