Abstract

When same-sex marriage was approved in the District of Columbia, the DC Marriage Bureau had to change its preprinted forms from asking for the name of the “bride and groom” to the name of each “spouse.” And officers performing marriage ceremonies changed “I now pronounce you husband and wife” to “I now pronounce you legally married.”
