LAS VEGAS — Clark County has hit the 1,000 mark in issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Las Vegas residents Christopher Barnson and Daryl Reed received the 1,000th license for same-sex couples, with wedding rings already on their fingers. They said Wednesday that they plan to get married later this month.
Las Vegas bills itself as the marriage capital of the world. Same-sex couples made up a little more than 10 percent of couples who obtained marriage licenses around the state in the week after the gay marriage ban was dissolved in Nevada.
Same-sex marriage became legal in Nevada on October 9, 2014.
