ISLAND WEDDING

Guam Issues Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

On Tuesday morning, gay couples in Guam started applying for marriage licenses, as their island is now the first U.S. territory to recognize same-sex marriage. A lawsuit against a registrar for denying a license in April paved the way, and after a legal battle between the attorney general and the governor, the ban was struck down on Friday. Gay couples can begin to wed five days after the license application.
