Same sex couples can now marry in Illinois
(KTVI) – Same sex couples in Illinois can tie the knot right now even though the law doesn’t officially take effect until June.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says county clerks in Illinois can issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, effective immediately. A late February ruling by a federal judge in Chicago determined Illinois’ original gay marriage ban was unconstitutional.
The ruling means there’s nothing to stop same-sex couples from marrying now.
