BREAKING NEWS: A federal judge overturned Pennsylvania's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional Tuesday, saying it's time to toss such laws "into the ash heap of history," according to

Judge John E. Jones III's ruling makes Pennsylvania the last Northeast state to allow same-sex marriages, although the state could challenge the decision before the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Ironically, this is coming from a Republican judge appointed by George W. Bush.

A handful of lawsuits were challenging the 1996 law that defines marriage between man and woman. The judge had some great points to make in his opinion, "Plaintiffs suffer a multitude of daily harms, for instance in the area of child-rearing, healthcare, taxation and end-of-life planning."

According to their tweet on Twitter, Philadelphia City Hall says "After today's PA DOMA decision, the register of wills is staying open late today - till 530 pm. Tomorrow extended hours 8 am - 7 pm."

If you are going to apply for a license, here is the address: Register of Wills, Room 180 City Hall, Philadelphia, PA 19107 and make sure you follow all the rules first. There was a lesbian couple that signed up first. I have a feeling this will be a joyous week for many in the LBGT lifestyle in the city.
