Same Sex Couples Finally Marrying in MaineThe first gay and lesbian couples to wed under Maine’s new same-sex marriage law exchanged vows early on Saturday in a series of spare but joyous civil ceremonies held shortly after midnight.

“We finally feel equal and happy to be living in Maine,” an exuberant Steven Bridges, 42, said shortly after he and his newly wedded husband, Michael Snell, 53, became the first couple at City Hall in Maine’s largest town to tie the knot.

After the pair had filled out the necessary paperwork, the city records clerk, Christine Horne, performed the brief, no-frills ceremony, pronouncing the two men married as they exchanged rings and kissed. Snell’s two adult daughters, both from a previous heterosexual marriage, looked on smiling.
