One Myrtle Beach couple spent their Valentine’s Day afternoon in tears. The same sex couple went to apply for a marriage license in protest of state law that outlaws same sex marriage. Lora Talbot is a lesbian. Her partner Benji Herndon, [is] transgender. The two have been in a relationship for three years and have a child together.
Tuesday afternoon, the couple waited in the probate office where marriage licenses are issued to see if they could apply for one.
“Today’s the day of love. Everybody should be celebrating today. Everybody’s got something to celebrate. We want to have our own celebration. I want to go home and be able to tell our kids, “hey, we’re married.” Ya know?,” Talbot said.
