Zeek Taylor and his partner of 42 years Dick Titus [pictured above] were one of the first lucky couples to obtain a marriage license at the Carroll County courthouse.

And with still no word on whether Judge Chris Piazza will issue a stay of his Friday ruling striking down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, the door remains open for courthouses across the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples come Monday.

Unlike most other courthouses in Arkansas, the Carroll County courthouse is open on Saturdays.

  2. Once gay couples are really married in any state, though the rank-and-file bigots may not realize it, the battle is over. Gay marriage has won.

  3. @roncharles - and will soon just be marriage, like interracial marriage is now just marriage.

    The judge's decision was great, by the way - anyone who's not reading these as they are handed down, should.
