Same-sex marriage arrives across the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on June 2, 2014

Monday is the day same-sex couples can finally get legally married across the Illinois Valley.

Despite State Representative Frank Mautino and Senator Sue Rezin voting no, the Marriage Equality Act passed last year. La Salle County Clerk JoAnne Caretto says getting a marriage license under the new law will be no different than opposite-sex marriage licenses including the same $30 cost.

Caretto says with anything new, it takes some adjustments with brand new software and forms for same-sex marriages. Same-sex licenses won’t include a space for maiden name and you will also get to choose if you want to be listed on the license as the groom, bride or spouse.
