Same-sex marriage becomes legal in the District of Columbia today, March 3rd. Chief Justice John Roberts declined to issue a stay requested by busybodies who don’t even live in the jurisdiction. The DC Court of Appeals refused to stand in the way of love.
The new gender-neutral marriage license application is online. The marriage bureau (Moultrie Courthouse, 500 Indiana Avenue NW, room 4485) opens at 8:30 AM. DC florist shops will open much earlier.
