Riley County Accepting Gay Marriage License Applications

KSAL StaffOctober 10, 2014

A second Kansas county has begun accepting marriage license applications from same-sex couples.

Darci Bohnenblust and Joleen Hickman had considered getting married in New York but changed those plans after an Oklahoma ban on gay marriage was overturned by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals – which also includes Kansas.

The couple, who have been together for 19 years, say they turned in their application on Thursday at the Riley County clerk’s office and were welcomed with open arms. The state has a three-day waiting period for marriage licenses, and Bohnenblust says the clerk told them to come back Tuesday to pick up their license.

Johnson County accepted the first same-sex marriage application on Tuesday, and issued the license on Friday.
