A federal judge has struck down a Guam law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. The Pacific Daily News reported that U.S. District Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood’s ruling will take effect on Monday at 8 a.m. local time (6 p.m. EST on Sunday.)

Kathleen Aguero and Loretta Pangelinan filed a lawsuit against the marriage ban in April after the Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services denied them a license that would allow them to tie the knot in the U.S. territory.

The Pacific Daily News reported that Aguero and Pangelinan plan to apply for a marriage license on Monday.
