What happens now????

What a wonderful day. SCOTUS has made same gender marriage legal in all 50 states. Our county clerk is already issuing licenses.

And I find myself at a loss for what to do now. I've looked into how to get the license. I don't quite know how we get married after that.

Do we rush down and get the license before some obstructionist turd-head puts on a delay?  Do we take our time and do it right?

i don't know what we'll do. But it's time to figure it out and that begins by talking about it.

Oh, and I guess I could pop the question, eh?

Wish us luck as we maneuver through whatever happens next.

I had tears in my eyes and a big grin on my face when I heard the news on the radio!

Incidentally, I asked him on the phone (lame, I know). And he said yes. He's off today and driving to the clerks office to see how long the line is. I can't stop crying. It rolls over me periodically in a wave. L

Lane, you were the first one I thought of when I heard the news this morning. I am sooo very happy for you that your path is now open. I wish the best for all 3 of you!

These are exciting times for the USA. Since you and your man have waited this long to get married, I wouldn't rush into it. However, do get round to it while it is still the law! Good luck to you all!

When I heard the news here in UK hubby wanted to know why I was cheering. Wish I could afford the flight I would dance at your wedding(whether invited or not (lol) So I will raise a glass of good Californian red and drink to you and Rob and not forgetting Sydney.

Congratulations!!! This is the best news ever!

I'd rush to make it legal and then have a huge party and say the vows in front of family and friends. How fun!

I agree with lw. Get married asap, and then have a party and say your vows. My niece married in MI during a short window before the turdheads interrupted, once it's official, it is golden!! So, so happy for you!

We're at the clerks office. Just 37 couples ahead of us now.

A festive atmosphere with as many children as adults. So sweet. We cheer for each couple called back. Soon it will be our turn.
