LGBTQ Nation reports:
A provision in Illinois’ marriage law is resulting in disappointment for many same-sex couples in neighboring states hoping to cross the border to obtain a marriage license. Enacted years before same-sex marriage became legal in Illinois, the law states that a marriage license is void if that couple is barred from marrying in the state where they live. The measure was designed to prevent people who are close family or underage from crossing state borders to wed, but is now putting county clerks in a tough spot with same-sex couples traveling from out-of-state to get married in Illinois.
The soonest the glitch could be fixed is next year.
