First Same-Sex Couple Ties The Knot In Illinois


Two Chicago women have become the first same-sex couple to legally wed in Illinois.

 

The new same-sex marriage law that was approved earlier this month doesn't take effect until next June, but a federal judge ordered the process to be expedited for Vernita Gray and Patricia Ewert.  Gray is terminally ill and may only have weeks to live.  The couple wanted to be legally married so that Ewert can have full access to spousal benefits.

 

The court ruling applied only to them, but attorneys say it could open the door for other same-sex couples in similar circumstances to seek to move up their wedding dates.
