“There is no doubt that Virginia is ready for the freedom to marry,” said James Parrish, executive director of Equality Virginia.  “We are thrilled that the Fourth Circuit denied the request for a stay and hope that we will see wedding celebrations in Virginia as early as next week.  Marriage validates the commitment couples make to one another and, if the Supreme Court doesn’t intervene, achieving marriage equality in Virginia will be a tremendous step forward.”
