While gay rights advocates are celebrating two Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriages, gay couples still won't be able to marry in Florida.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down a provision of a federal law denying federal benefits to married gay couples. It also left a lower court ruling overturning California's gay marriage ban intact.

But the rulings didn't address gay marriage bans in other states. Florida voters in 2008 approved a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages. It will take approval from 60 percent of voters to overturn it if the issue is put on the ballot again.
Attorney Elizabeth Schwartz said couples married outside Florida will receive some federal benefits if they return.
Still, gay rights advocates are hoping the Supreme Court's decisions provide momentum to eventually overturn Florida's ban. In March, a Public Policy Polling survey found 75 percent of Floridians support gay marriage.
"We are going to hope to join the rest of the county in being able to celebrate marriage equality," said Schwartz.
