Bleeding Heartland: So far, so good on first day for marriage equality in Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
As of midday on Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa had not heard of any same-sex couples having problems obtaining a marriage license in Iowa. Iowa Independent reported today that "marriage applications have been received in Bremer, Butler, Cerro Gordo, Chickasaw, Dallas, Dubuque, Fayette, Floyd, Fremont, Grundy, Guthrie, Howard, Linn, Mitchell, Pottawattamie, Polk, Harrison, Johnson, Mills, Winneshiek, Woodbury and Worth counties." Various local media are covering the story from outside county office buildings or courthouses, and I haven't seen any reports of disorderly conduct. Some couples have already been married, having received a judge's permission to waive the normal three-day waiting period before marriage.
