INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--- Within hours of Indiana's same-sex marriage ban being overturned, the state attorney general asked the judge to temporarily suspend his decision.
Wednesday night news spread quickly that a request "to stay" the judge's ruling could happen.
The Indiana attorney general's office has asked Judge Richard Young to stay his order Wednesday requiring the state to recognize gay marriages performed in Indiana and other states.
Thursday morning more couples were getting their marriage licenses and exchanging vows.
Both St. Joseph County and Elkhart County had a steady stream of people coming in.
The announcement came as a surprise and many made a spur of the moment decision to get married.
Chris Scott says, “It really just acknowledges that our rights are just as important that anybody else’s.”
In St. Joseph County at least 50 couples received licenses and about half that in Elkhart County.
