The History of Same-Sex Marriages in Naples
US District Judge Robert Hinkle rules in favor of the freedom to marry, on August 21st, 2014. The US Supreme Court stayed the ruling for 91 days. Over the next several months, the state of Florida tried to extend the stay in the Brenner ruling that US District Judge Hinkle ruled in favor of. Finally, on January 6th, 2015, the stay expired and same-sex couples in Florida were granted the right to marry.
Naples is located in Collier County, which had 572 same-sex couples as of the 2010 US Census. The Williams Institute gathers data taken from the US Census and provides an analysis to make it easier to determine the number of same-sex couples around the country. While Collier County only has 572 same-sex couples, the state of Florida has 48,496 same-sex couples. If half of these couples were to marry in the next several years, the marriages could add over $110 million to wedding businesses within the state.
