Washington, USA: Judges to Donate Time to Marry Gay/Lesbian Couples

Written by scott on November 16th, 2012

Seattle City Hall will open for a special event on the Sunday following a new law taking effect, which will allow same-sex couples to marry in the state of Washington.

Mayor Mike McGinn, said through spokesperson, Aaron Pickus, that eight municipal judges will donate their time on Sunday 9 December, three days after Referendum 74 becomes active, allowing equal marriage in the state, reports the Associated Press.

The judges will be available between 12-5pm on Sunday 9 December, the first day it is possible for couples to have their marriage licenses signed, despite being allowed to collect them from 6 December.

    Hi.

    I believe with the recent voter-approved same-sex marriage laws, comes an obligation for the federal government to recognize those unions as legitimate. I believe it’s as much an economic issue as a social issue.

    Please sign and promote the White House petition below.

    Republicans who support same-sex marriage please make your views clear to your lawmakers and party leaders. Your voice is crucial to change.
