HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Hundreds of same-sex couples are getting licenses to marry in Pennsylvania, and one couple even got married.
That's happening as Gov. Tom Corbett said Wednesday he won't appeal a federal judge's day-old decision to overturn Pennsylvania's law banning recognition of same-sex marriage.
Pamela VanHaitsma and Jess Garrity of Pittsburgh tied the knot after getting an Allegheny County judge to waive a three-day waiting period for a marriage license.
Stephen Miller and Jim Devaty plan to get married Tuesday after nearly two decades together. They'll crack open a bottle of champagne and plan a gathering for family and friends in suburban Pittsburgh.
Shari Gross of Erie says she and partner Judy Zurinski are legally married in New York, and promised to throw a party once their home state recognized their union.
