Milwaukee County Clerk's Office receives at least one same-sex marriage license application Monday

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee County clerk's office has received at least one marriage license application from a same-sex couple after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Wisconsin's appeal in its gay marriage case.

Milwaukee County Deputy Clerk George Christenson said by Monday afternoon, one or two same-sex couples had applied for licenses. Dane County Clerk Scott McDonnell said two couples had applied for licenses as of mid-afternoon Monday.

Wisconsin has a five-day waiting period to receive a marriage license after an application is made. Some clerks waived the waiting period in June so couples could marry during a brief window before a federal judge's decision overturning the gay marriage ban was put on hold. But Christenson says there's no need to rush now.
