Their attorney, Dana Nessel, says April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse will be married on Aug. 22 in Southfield. Federal Judge Bernard Friedman, who struck down the gay-marriage ban, will officiate, as The Associated Press reported in June.
DeBoer and Rowse sued the state after they couldn’t jointly adopt each other’s children. That case grew into a challenge to a Michigan constitutional amendment that recognized marriage only between a man and a woman.
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court said same-sex couples have a right to marry.
