Two men who became the first gay men to marry in Florida will be attending President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, invited Jeff and Todd Delmay of Hollywood to be her guests Tuesday night in Washington, D.C.

Todd Delmay tells the SunSentinel (http://bit.ly/1CvVY3E ) that the congresswoman called the newlyweds with the invitation herself. He says he hopes "that every same-sex family feels like we have them there with us in our heart."

The Delmays were among six same-sex couples who sued Miami-Dade County for the right to get married. Theirs was among the first same-sex weddings performed in Miami on Jan. 5, a day before same-sex marriages became legal statewide.
