Feel The Love

A whole buncha Washingtonians woke up this morning looking a their futures a little differently: Today, the D.C. Superior Court started accepting marriage license applications from same-sex couples. More, from the Washington Post,

About 45 couples with their coffee, newspapers and blackberries — many dressed in blazers and slacks as they planned to go to work after filing an application — were waiting in line when the court's marriage bureau opened its doors at 8:30 a.m. Employees allowed 10 couples to enter at a time, and had extra personnel on hand to accept the applications.

The applications take at least three business days to process.
