NEW YORK (AP) - Gay couples cheered by supporters have begun
marrying in New York City on the first day same-sex weddings are
legal in the Empire State.
New York City officials expect to host hundreds of same-sex
weddings Sunday. Clerks in New York City and about a dozen other
cities statewide are opening their doors Sunday to cater to
same-sex couples.
In Manhattan, the first of about 100 couples waiting in line on
a sweltering Sunday began exchanging vows in a city clerk's office.
Judges waived a mandatory 24-hour waiting period that allowed
couples to exchange vows moments after receiving their licenses.
A small number of same-sex couples got married at the stroke of
midnight around the state.
