Doting Fathers Have The Opportunity To Finally Marry In Minnesota
Two loving fathers celebrate the day they can marry with their two daughters, thanks to opportunity given by the state of Minnesota after legalizing gay marriage. The state first started issuing marriage licenses to gay couples on August 1st of 2013 after voters voted against banning it in November of 2012.
Minnesota became the second state in the Midwest to do this, next to Iowa. During the first month of legalized gay marriage in Minnesota, at least 1,600 gay couples married, which accounted for a third of all marriages during that time period.
