LOVERS KEY, Fla.- More than 70 couples were expected at the park on Valentine's Day, but rain put a damper on the occassion. The vow renewal took place regardless, but with a smaller turnout.
Some felt love would conquer all, however, and headed to the Lee County Clerk's Office. Two dozen were married before noon.
Gay and lesbian couples peacefully protest same sex marriage laws in the state by applying for a marriage license every year on Valentine's Day, but no one showed up this year. Some say they are tired of waiting, and go where their marriages will be recognized.
