Floodgates open

After months of rising pressure, the floodgates are open. Same-sex marriage licenses are selling like hotcakes in Washington, D.C., starting today.

The new marriage license form lists “applicant” and “spouse” instead of husband and wife. They may still have some kinks to work out, of course. Such as, it seems to only ask the gender of the spouse?

Maybe the applicant’s gender is recorded elsewhere in the process.

Anyways, with Maryland offering to recognize the new marriages, business should remain brisk.

Update: Weddings started March 6.
