Earlier this month, a court ruling declared an Iowa ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Today, that decision took effect, and the first same-sex couples have applied for their marriage licenses. Apparently, all over the state there are couples lined up at government offices to fill out their applications (above). At least one couple — Melisa Keeton and Shelley Wolfe – has already been proclaimed legally married, surely with more to follow very soon.
A big congratulations to all. May much happiness follow for you. And may similar rulings/laws be shortly enacted all over this country.
