Following a judge's ruling yesterday that Arkansas' gay-marriage ban is discriminatory, marriage licenses are being issued to couples in the state. Kristen Seaton and Jennifer Rambo were the first to marry this morning. Congrats!

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has said that, while he does not personally support the ban, he will seek a stay on the constitutional amendment adopted in 2004.

The state follows Michigan, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Texas in overturning their gay-marriage bans. Federal judges have also ordered Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee to start recognizing gay marriages from other states.
