Same Sex Marriage Now Allowed In Hawaii

HONOLULU (AP) - Same-sex couples are taking advantage of Hawaii's newfound aloha for gay weddings.
    
Six couples tied the knot early Monday, shortly after midnight, when a new law allowing same-sex couples to marry took effect.
    
A Waikiki resort was hosting mass ceremonies for anyone wanting to sign up, while a group of clergy who pushed for the new law planned to host a wedding for an openly gay Unitarian minister at a church near downtown Honolulu.
    
Hawaii's marriage laws allow couples to register for a license and be married the same day, a process conducive for tourists only in the state a short time.
    
Couples can sign up for a license online, then be verified by any license agent throughout the state.
