Historic: Pennsylvania's First Marriage License For A Same-Sex Couple Is Issued

Pennsylvania has officially married a same-sex couple for the first time in the state's history. 

Alicia Terrizzi and Loreen Bloodgood, a couple of 18 years, were the first in line this morning after County Official D. Bruce Hanes announced Montgomery County would begin issuing marriage certificates to all couples despite a state ban on same-sex marriage. 

The couple has two kids and now a shiny, new and HISTORIC marriage licenses to go with their new bevy of state and federal benefits. 

Congratulations!
