Kansas Begins Issuing Gender-Neutral Marriage Forms

KSAL StaffDecember 11, 2014

Kansas has started issuing gender-neutral marriage forms amid ongoing litigation over its same-sex marriage ban.

Copies of the new forms were included in a motion that seeks to have former Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Robert Moser dismissed from the litigation.

The motion, which was filed Wednesday, notes that Moser has resigned and that new marriage forms delete all references to husbands and wives. Applicants seeking to wed now fill in information under the headings “Party A” or “Party B.” They can select whether they want to be referred to as a bride, groom or simply a spouse.

The forms were changed last month after the U.S. Supreme Court denied Kansas’ request to prevent gay and lesbian couples from marrying while the state fights the issue in court.
