At 8:30 Wednesday morning, Montgomery County in Pennsylvania began issuing marriage licenses again. They were the first county to allow same-sex couples to marry, but a court order prevented them from doing so even after Governor Tom Corbett declined to appeal a ruling overturning Pennsylvania’s ban on same-sex marriage until today. All of the marriage licenses the county had issued before are still valid.
Who would have thought a GOP politician could COMPLETELY make my day without saying something so ludicrous that I would be curled up in the fetal position holding my sides and laughing for ten minutes? (I’m looking at you, Mike Huckabee) Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett has announced that he will not be appealing a ruling in Whitewood v. Wolf striking down Pennsylvania’s gay marriage ban. Had he appealed, I would have been forced to do actual work like finding out whether these marriage licenses they’ve been handing out will be good in three days when the couples can actually get married. Also, all these couples can get married in three days instead of wondering if they should put those deposits down yet.
