When you marry in Georgia, the courts won’t make it easy for you

Georgia has made marriage equality a legal reality, but it may take a few months before some couples are able to get married.

The state’s Board of Elections announced Friday that marriage licenses will be available to the public starting April 1, a time when voters will be able to weigh in on the issue.

The announcement comes two weeks after the Supreme Court struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, giving gay couples across the country the right to marry.
