More Alabama counties issuing same-sex marriage licenses

1

Additional Alabama counties are issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples as some opposition to the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage nationwide fades away.

Several more counties in the state on Monday said they’d begun issuing marriage licenses.

The reversals come more than a week after the high court’s landmark ruling that declared same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry.

Escambia, Randolph and Coosa were among the latest to begin issuing licenses after halting for days.

Last week Henry County Probate Judge David Money said he expected to begin issuing marriage licenses to all couples on Tuesday.

Other counties including Pike, Geneva, Houston and Washington have stopped issuing marriage licenses altogether.
