MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota‘s largest county is getting ready to start taking applications for marriage licenses from same-sex couples.
The new application forms replace the words “bride” and “groom” with the word “applicant” for both individuals.
A spokesman for neighboring Ramsey County tells the Star Tribune that officials will roll out that county’s new license in the next few days.
Spokesman Art Coulson says some couples have already expressed a desire to be married at 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 1 and that officials are working to accommodate that.
