First Look: Couples Waiting To Get a DC Marriage License

Pro-marriage clergy getting ready in DC

Two couples waiting in line to apply for a marriage license in DC.

 

The first couple is Angelisa Young and Sinjoyla Townsend, together for 13 years.  Neither of them could sleep and they stayed up all night thrilled about this historic opportunity.  Sinjoyla told us: ”I’m just excited because we’re able to get married. The institution of marriage is an institution that’s respected in every culture. Anywhere we go, people know what marriage is and we’re so excited to be a part of it.”
