In January 2014 Marylanders celebrated it’s first year of marriage equality.  It was the first state to win same sex marriage by ballot measure.

Getting married in Maryland is easy, because there is only a 48 hour waiting period.  And the marriage license is immediately placed in the hands of the couple the day of application.

Having a MD same sex marriage is no different than planning an elopement, small wedding, or something absolutely fabulous.

Understanding Same Sex Marriage Labels

Many people call MD same sex marriages, gay wedding.  Therefore, our MD Gay Marriages sister site is being replaced with The DC Marriage  Knot.  We believe in the intergration of both same sex marriages and traditional marriages.  Separation is never the answer to equality.  Integration is the only way we can truly be united as one.

It is our hope that one day MD same sex marriages, gay marriages, civil marriages, gay weddings, same sex weddings, lesbian weddings, lesbian marriages, will be described with one word “marriage”.   So we have created a Gay Marriage FAQ page to address any concerns you may have.
