Same-Sex Marriage Applications Available in Stearns County
07/10/2013 - 1:25 AM
Marriage license applications for same-sex couples are now available in Stearns County. The Freedom to Marry law takes effect on Thursday, August 1 after the Minnesota Legislature passed the bill this year.
County officials say even though applications are available, the marriage licenses are not valid until the first of August. Marriage applicants can apply and pay for their license online through the Stearns County Virtual License Center. Both parties are then required to sign the application in person at any of the license centers in the county.
The county plans to distribute all same-sex marriage applications beginning July 29, provided the 5-day waiting period has passed.
