Same-sex couples begin marrying across New York

NEW YORK — Gay couples cheered by supporters have begun marrying in New York City on the first day same-sex weddings are legal in the Empire State.

New York City officials expect to host hundreds of same-sex weddings Sunday. Clerks in New York City and about a dozen other cities statewide are opening their doors Sunday to cater to same-sex couples.

In Manhattan, the first of about 100 couples waiting in line on a sweltering Sunday began exchanging vows in a city clerk’s office. Judges waived a mandatory 24-hour waiting period that allowed couples to exchange vows moments after receiving their licenses.

A small number of same-sex couples got married at the stroke of midnight around the state.
