San Francisco gay couple obtains marriage license from Rowan County clerk’s office
A gay couple from San Francisco recently obtained a marriage license from Rowan County's clerk's office, and got married in a small ceremony at Morehead State University in Kentucky.
Mark Shrayber and Allen Corona, who received their marriage license on September 8, are the first couple to complete the required paperwork to be married in the county since the clerk's office restarted processing licenses.
The couple returned to the county clerk's office on September 9 to file the license with the office, per legal protocol in the state. The couple claimed that they received encouraging response from residents.
The couple obtained the license on the same day as county clerk Kim Davis was from jail. She was arrested and sent to jail five days ago on contempt charges for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of her religious beliefs against homosexuality.
A U. S. District judge issued release orders for her on the condition that she would not prevent her deputies from issuing licenses to same-sex couples. It may be noted here that the U. S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in June this year.
Davis will reportedly take a couple of days off from work to spend time with her family. She is expected to return to work this Friday or Monday next week.
