And the victories, short-lived though they may be, keep rolling in!
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Gay couples in Wisconsin convinced some county clerks to give them licenses Monday so they could wed before an expected hold on a judge’s decision declaring the state’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional.
Other clerks, however, refused to act without an order from the court or state, which is appealing the judge’s decision.
Hundreds of couples married over the weekend in Milwaukee and Madison after county clerks in the state’s two largest cities extended office hours following the federal judge’s ruling Friday. Couples living elsewhere had to wait until Monday to get licenses because Wisconsin requires residents to apply in the counties where they live.
