Getting a marriage license hit/miss for same-sex couples

LAGRANGE – The ability of same-sex couples to obtain a marriage license depends on where they live in Indiana.

A federal judge yesterday struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriages as discriminatory. Couples in many counties rushed to clerk's offices to get a license.

LaGrange County Clerk Bonnie Brown says her office issued its first same-sex marriage license this morning by changing the application form lines of male and female to “applicant 1 and 2”.

But Steuben County Clerk Shelly Herbert wasn't issuing licenses yet. Steuben County Attorney Donald Stuckey advised Herbert not to issue licenses until there is a ruling on the state's request for a stay of yesterday's decision.

This morning in Marion County a huge line stretched from the clerk's office past the elevators as couples waited to get a license. The clerk performed marriages up to 9 p-m yesterday.
