BOISE, Idaho (AP) — For two gay couples in Idaho, the difference between joy and heartache was a matter of moments.

Don Moline and Clint Newlan were first in line at the Twin Falls County clerk's office Wednesday morning, after a federal appellate court rejected Idaho's ban on gay marriages the day before. They got a marriage license, but then word came that the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily blocked gay marriages in Idaho Wednesday morning.

Ashley Owens and Brittany Dickerson were denied. They broke down in sobs. It's unclear how long the Supreme Court stay will remain in effect in Idaho.Moline says he and Newlan "were in the right place at the right time."
