Two of the plaintiffs in the case that challenged Utah's ban against marriage equality got engaged on Valentine's Day.
Derek Kitchen popped the question at an event on Friday night to his parter Moudi Sbeity.
The law was found unconstitutional in December in a U.S. District Court, and the case is now headed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Along with Kitchen and Sbeity, Karen Archer and Kate Call, with Laurie Wood and Kody Partridge, are the other couples in the lawsuit, being argued by Peggy Tomsic of the Salt Lake City law firm of Magleby & Greenwood, P.C., and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
