Same-Sex Couple Marries Outside Philly Despite Ban
A suburban Philadelphia woman who tied the knot with her longtime partner Sunday with a county marriage license despite the commonwealth's ban on same-sex marriage said it was the day "that every committed couple waits for."
39-year-old Dee Spagnuolo and 38-year-old Sasha Ballen were married at their Wynnewood home Sunday — after receiving a license from officials in Montgomery County.
The ceremony was the latest to take place in the county where officials began issuing licenses last week — licenses that could be ruled invalid if officially challenged, although so far no such court challenges have been announced — in defiance of a 1996 state law defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
The licenses issued Wednesday in Montgomery County are believed to be the first to same-sex couples in Pennsylvania, the only northeastern state without same-sex marriages or civil unions. State law also says same-sex marriages, even ones entered legally elsewhere, are void in Pennsylvania.
