Kentucky could have 2 marriage licenses – Details
- Updated: February 21, 2016
Kentucky lawmakers want to create two marriage license forms, one designed for gay couples and another for straight couples, in a move critics say harkens back to the “separate but equal” days of the civil rights movement.
One form would note the “bride” and “groom” while another form would note “first party” and “second party.” Bill sponsor Republican Sen. Stephen West of Paris said couples, both homosexual and heterosexual, could use either form. The forms would not include the name of the county clerk who issued the license and it would require couples to note their gender.
The proposal has been met with bipartisan support, coming five months after Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to issue licenses for same-sex marriages after the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage.
But Democratic Sen. Morgan McGarvey of Louisville objected, calling it disparate treatment of gay couples.
