COLUMBIA, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) - South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said same-sex marriages are still on hold in the Palmetto State.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court brought to an end delays in same-sex marriages in five states - Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The Associated Press reported that same sex-couples in South Carolina, North Carolina, and four other states should also be able to get married because they would be bound by the same appellate rulings that were put on hold pending the Supreme Court's review.

Wilson said that wasn't quite the case.

“Our case (Bradacs v. Wilson) has not yet been decided," Wilson said in a statement released Monday afternoon. "Until the courts rule on the matter, South Carolina will seek to uphold our state constitution.”

Meanwhile a human rights group based in Asheville expects same-sex couples in Buncombe County to be able to tie the knot within a few days.
