FARMINGTON -- About 50 people, 25 couple, lined up outside the Davis County clerks' office Monday morning to receive their marriage licenses.
The first people in line were a West Jordan couple.
"We made the gamble that this was the best bet," Jaylinn Stowell said of coming to Davis County.
The couple arrived at 5:55 a.m. Monday.
This is like the first movement we have been involved in," Stowell said of her and her partner Marcie Gray.
Gray said that she and Stowell have been a couple for 20 years. "I have just wanted this forever," Gray said.
The couple was married immediately after receiving their marriage license as they walked inside the courthouse. The county will attempt to marry the groups, having other couples in line serve as witnesses to move the process along, said county officials.
Davis County Clerk/Auditor Steve Rawlings said they will continue to issue licenses until they are informed otherwise of a court ruling in Denver.
To ensure order for everyone, Rawlins explained to the crowd that he had brought a few Davis County Sheriff deputies into the courthouse. When Davis County clerks opened the door for the first license, a cheer went up in the hallway from those standing in line.
