D.C. Ushers in Gay Marriage

Marriage is a possibility for all couples in the nation’s capital as of Wednesday: The Washington D.C. Superior Court accepted marriage licenses from gay couples for the first time. When the court opened at 8:30, 45 couples were waiting outside, and by 9 the line had grown to 60 couples. Processing of the licenses takes three days, however, so next Tuesday, March 9, will be the earliest day for same-sex marriage ceremonies.
