NYC Offices Open On A Sunday For Gay Marriages

New York City clerks' offices will be open on Sunday, July 24, to perform the first gay marriages under a new state law.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office says the offices will open at 8:30 a.m. to receive marriage license applications in all five boroughs.

Normally there is a 24-hour waiting period before people can be married, but a judge can waive that requirement. Bloomberg's office says judges will be on hand to consider waiver requests and perform the marriages.

During the next week the offices will also stay open until 6:30 p.m., two hours later than usual.
