Video: first Indianapolis same sex couple marries

AKSARBENT doesn't usually publish gay wedding vow exchanges or (most especially) contrived flash mob proposals, but Craig Bowen and Jake Miller have been together for eight years and decided to get hitched as soon as Indiana let them, which was today.
     The two sons of Indiana seem genuine, unpretentious and level-headed: although U.S. District Judge Richard Young, who struck down Indiana's ban on gay banns, did not stay his ruling, the office of AG Greg Zoeller, representing the state, filed an emergency motion for stay pending appeal with the U.S. District Court this afternoon, so the couple took no chances.
     IndyStar reports:
     Marion County Clerk Beth White said she will issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples today in her office at the City-County Building in Downtown Indianapolis until 8 p.m.
     "I will also conduct short, civil ceremonies on a first-come, first-served basis for a voluntary $50 contribution to the Indiana Youth Group," White said in a news release.
