Gay Marriages-Wisconsin

The number of Wisconsin counties issuing licenses to same-sex couples who want to get married is up to 49 and includes counties in the Winona area.
Shawano County Clerk Rosemary Rueckert and Eau Claire County Clerk Janet Loomis said Tuesday that their offices are now accepting applications for licenses.

Other counties issuing the licenses include: Buffalo, Trempealeau, Pepin, La Crosse, and Jackson counties.

County clerks have been struggling to decide what to do after a federal judge declared the state's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional but did not tell the state how to implement her decision. Some clerks have been issuing licenses, while others say they will wait for more definite guidance.
