FL Marriage Licenses Now Acknowledge Gays

Paperwork used in Florida to apply for a marriage license and the license itself now uses different language to describe the two people tying the knot.

Instead of “groom” and “bride,” the forms now use the terms “spouse” and “spouse.”

The move acknowledges Florida’s January 6th statewide legalization of same sex marriage and the subsequent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June.

Changes could also be coming to Florida’s birth certificates.

They only list the name of the mother now.

Gay rights supporters want that changed to acknowledge both parents.
