Salt Lake City, UT, 23 December 2013 – Two separate lines began forming late Sunday night as hopeful same sex couples queue up to apply for marriage licenses in the 18th state to make such unions legal. Hopeful couples slept in tents and under layers of blankets in hopes that the State is not successful in its appeal. With each line claiming to be first potential for conflict existed. A good friend, Nate and I, tried speaking with the groups to integrate the two lines to alleviate any issues. The sheriff’s sergeant, John Neron, was friendly and as helpful as he could officially be but told us they were counseled not to support in any form. After explaining to the groups that we should work together a fellow applicant, Isaac Troyo, found small cards to number. There are two sets of numbers with each set expected to line up with their number partner. Greg and I will be number 57 or 58 in line this morning. Good luck to our fellow alternative families today.
