black gay wedding

Planning on a quickie marriage to that hottie you just met at the club last week? You might have to wait a little longer if you live in one of several Florida counties where quickie marriages have been put on hold to prevent gays from tying the knot.

From First Coast News:

If same-sex marriage is allowed, Duval Clerk of Courts Ronnie Fussell, Clay Clerk Tara Green and Baker Clerk Stacie Harvey will have no choice but to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. But to avoid performing ceremonies for them, these clerks have decided to end all courthouse weddings.

Fussell says the decision came after a series of discussion with members of his staff who currently officiate wedding ceremonies. None of them, including Fussell, felt comfortable doing gay weddings so they decided to end the practice all together, he said.

"It was decided as a team, as an office, this would be what we do so that there wouldn't be any discrimination," Fussell said. "The easiest way is to not do them at all."

      I guess I don't understand the hype about shantell

    • luVn_liFe…

      Vanna she's cute, watching her on Nellyville . . . . I did not know she was half white

    • Vanna is the root of all evil

      Luvin She keeps talking about her past tho with floyd. I'm like we get it. I understand she hurt but u got a good man now. I'm like some us been dogged and have nobody

    • luVn_liFe…

      I only seen one episode she was mentioning her Ex. Yeah she needs to zip it about her EX.Maybe Nelly/Producers want her too.
      U know they doing anything to Be provocative :shrug:

    • Vanna is the root of all evil

      This my 3rd episode. I just saw him performing in the Bahamas and she's like "oh I hope Nelly wouldn't dis respect me like the relationship I had". I'm saying to myself he dancing with an on stage dancer honey u will be ok. U know what type of occupation he has. Chill hun

      ~~~~~~
      :facepalm: that's ridiculous, I turned it to watch this boring NFL Game.
      I thought about Ashanti watching these two.. He just dropped her like a bad habit and is in luv show casing someone else on his show.
      Where she should be :tea:

    • Vanna is the root of all evil

      I thought about Ashanti too. He wasnt gon marry ashunti. Like I just heard shantell say she dated floyd for 7 years. Y in the hell would u invest that much time in a man that rich and didn't walk away with a ring or a baby?? Serious questions...

    • luVn_liFe…

      You know VANNA..
      Everybody has their different reasoning for that type of situation. Shantel Just turned 30 may not have even given marriage,kids or a "serious commitment" a thought. Maybe she was just rolling w/the punches cause to her it MAY have just all fun and games.
      I was in a looonng term relationship with a man I knew I would never marry.
      One - I was young and it was all fun.
      Two - His pockets were deep :shrug:

    • Vanna is the root of all evil

      Luvin if u watching cardinald I love Fitzgerald!
