NYC To Open City Offices On Sunday July 24 To Grant First Gay Marriages!

gay marriages to be granted in nyc on july 24

This is wonderful!!!!

In an effort to allow gay couples to get married on the day that legalization of gay marriage takes effect, New York City will be opening city offices on Sunday July 24 AND they'll be keeping them open two hours longer than usual! Awesome!

City clerk's offices in all five NYC boroughs will be open with judges on hand "to officiate at the weddings after couples receive marriage licenses."

And yes, usually there's a 24 hour waiting period to get married after receiving a marriage license…but NYC is waiving that so gays can get married on THE SAME DAY it becomes legal! Amazing!!!

Here's what Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg had to say about it in a statement:

"This is a historic moment for New York, a moment many couples have waited years and even decades to see, and we are not going to make them wait one day longer than they have to."

We are BEYOND EXCITED for this and we CANNOT wait to hear about all the marriages that take place on the 24th! We have a feeling there's going to be tons!!!!!!!

Great job, NYC! We are SO proud!

    How ironic you're so excited about gay marriage when there's no chance you'll ever find anyone. The Big Apple is now just known as The Big Fruit.

    The institution of marriage is extremely unique in that it is a contract that usually encompasses both the legal and religious. That legal and religious fusion has kept it unlawful for many years. It isn't realistic or constitutionally correct to keep it that way. Gays absolutely should be allowed to join in the legal state of matrimony. As far as the religious unification, churches should be allowed to deny the unification ceremony under their beliefs. But from a legal standpoint, there is zero reason a gay couple should not be able to marry. This shouldn't even be an argument. Republicans are supposed to be staunch upholders of the constitution. This Michelle Bachman has to go. Give us a REAL republican who believes in total equality and very limited government, and then you will see a real winner.

    I think this a great thing they are doing. Its going to be a popular day in New York. I just wonder how many gay couples will try and get married this day, just to say they got married on this day. Just sayin :) but yay for New York

    Re: fimacxo – Stop complaining…straights have it their way all the time, big deal they have to wait 24hrs…stop whining…Re: Hairplugs for Hilton – Hey bully, I think you must be speaking about yourself instead of Perez because with a hateful mind like yours, who would want to pair up with you? The Big Fruit? Have you ever been to NYC? I doubt it, because I have a feeling you never step out of your backwards/ignorant town…just sayin' ’cause IF you did and saw the world in a broader sense, you would not have the hate you do….why do you hate people that are different? Seriously? You must feel threatened…sad for you.

    Re: fimacxo – actually straight people should have to wait longer than 24 hours. they need to take marriage much more seriously. straights are always getting married then divorced then remarried then divorced, ect, ect….. they totally make a mockery of marriage. "hey, i'm pregnant let's get married, hey, let's go to vegas get fucked up and marry someone i hardly know, hey, if you give me money i'll marry you so you can stay in the country, hey, you murdered someone and i saw you on t.v. but i want to marry you in prison. i swear straight people marry for the weirdest reasons.
