Washington, USA: Dan Savage and Partner Get Marriage License

Written by scott on December 7th, 2012

Among the first round of couples to get their marriage licenses as soon as allowed by Washington State are Dan Savage and Terry Miller.

The founders of the It Gets Better campaign were married in Canada in 2005 and had said they spent thousands on legal work needed to secure some of the rights afforded married couples, including living wills and power of attorney. But for the first time they were able to take a real step toward marriage in their home state.

State law requires a three-day waiting period from getting a license and having a ceremony, so the first day same-sex couples can actually be wed is Sunday.
