A Guide to Marriage In Washington State

Now that same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in the state of Washington, there are a lot of questions about the procedures.

When can we obtain a marriage license?  Starting on December 6, 2012.  Marriages can begin on December 9, 2012.

How does the new marriage law impact a couple’s Domestic Partner status?  It terminates if you get married but if you choose not to do the whole marriage license thing, it will automatically convert to marriage on June 30, 2014.

Those are the simple basic answers to the 2 most common questions.  For more information on the topic, I refer to you a wonderful fact sheet with lots of Q & A’s by QLAW (Washington GLBT Bar Association).  Read :  Marriage Equality in Washington!
