Gay Marriage Effective This Weekend

(Springfield, IL) -- Gay and lesbian couples across Illinois will be able to tie the knot in just a few days. The couples will officially be allowed to get licenses on Sunday but since that's the weekend, most will have to wait until Monday. They can say their "I-do's" as early as Tuesday. Couples looking to convert their civil unions into marriages can do that by filling out a certificate. That can also be done on Monday.
