Six Idaho Same Sex Couples Could Get a Do-Over Marriage
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Six same-sex couples in northern Idaho who received marriage licenses before state officials say a federal court made such unions legal are being given a unique state-approved opportunity for a do-over.
Northern Idaho officials are offering a marriage license application that has the unusual option of selecting already married. The application available only to the six same-sex couples in Latah County who married in early October is intended to allow them to get a new application without denying they're already married.
The couples say they'd be lying and could face legal penalties if they filled out a new marriage license application and put down anything but married. It's not clear if the couples will take the new option. County officials said Wednesday that none of the applications have been used.
