US: Two-thirds of same-sex marriage licences in Minnesotan county are for North Dakotans
Almost two-thirds of same-sex marriage licences in a Minnesota county bordering North Dakota, were issued to same-sex couples with at least one resident of the North Dakota.
According to reports, Clay County Deputy Recorder Lisa Junze said forty out of 68 same-sex marriage licences filed were for couples both from North Dakota, and another five were for couples where at least one of them were from the state.
Same-sex couples have been able to marry in Minnesota since August 2013, however North Dakota remains the only state in the US with a same-sex marriage ban which is not being challenged in court.
Voters in North Dakota approved a ban on same-sex marriage back in 2004, with 73%.
