​Marion County Clerk’s Office will not issue same-sex marriage licenses    

​INDIANAPOLIS – Marion County Clerk’s Office will not issue same-sex marriage licenses despite the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals decision finding Indiana’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional.

“I am committed to the issue of marriage equality but must respect the court’s decision on this matter,” says Clerk White. “After reviewing of the decision as well as listening to statements made by the litigants in this case, it is this office’s understanding the 7th Circuit did not overturn the current stay upholding Indiana’s unconstitutional law on same-sex marriage.”

Clerk White continues, “If current understanding of the court’s decision changes or if the court provides additional instruction, I will gladly welcome all loving Hoosier couples to the Clerk’s Office for a marriage license.”
