NY Marriage Application Still Says "Bride" & "Groom"


They say the devil is in the details, and here's one detail they forgot about in New York following the legalization of gay marriage -- the marriage license application still says "bride" and "groom.

Applications for same-sex couples were first made available on Tuesday. Many rushed to be among the first to fill them out. But what they found were categories that said "Groom - Info" and "Bride - Info."

A spokesman for the New York City Council said the forms were updated by Tuesday night to include the gender neutral "Spouse - Info."

Same-sex couples can begin walking down the aisle in New York on July 25. It is now the sixth state to legalize gay marriage.

The Independent Democratic Conference advocacy group of New York State Senators estimates that 21,000 same-sex couples would get married over the next three years.
