Debi Gopal and Keshav Kishore were married in Delaware.
Debi, a lawyer, and Kishole, a doctor, were married Aug. 3 in Washington state.
Dehi, who works for a Delaware law firm, said her marriage was “an honor” and a “big relief.”
Kisholt, a graduate of The Ohio State University and an attorney, said the ceremony was “a little stressful” but she “was happy.”
“It’s been a very, very happy couple for the most part,” she said.
Kisholts parents, the Gopalanes, said they planned the ceremony for their daughter’s birthday.
“My mom, she said, she thought it would be very exciting for us,” said Debi.
“I told her, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s the greatest thing.
“We’re not here for the money, we’re here for our daughter,” she told The Associated Press. “
“She’s going to come out with her big announcement one day and it will be a big relief.” “

Delaware is among a handful of states where same-sex couples can marry.
Some states have already legalized same-day marriage, including New York and Vermont.
The Gopalas are among a growing number of couples in the United States who are legally married.
Last year, a Massachusetts couple who had lived together for nearly two decades got married.
That same year, two Oregon couples were married.
In 2018, New York became the first state to allow same-gender couples to marry in state-run hospitals and government buildings.
