Local same-sex couples still wait

(Continued)

The Rev. W. Edward Grim of Agape Ministries, who works with a LGBT support group at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Grand Traverse, said there are numerous couples in Grand Traverse County who were affected by the stay.

“There was no window here to get a license. There were plans for people to be there first thing this morning, and of course, that didn’t materialize. That’s a big disappointment,” Grim said. “Once again, their lives are put on hold.”

Erber said he and LaPierre still plan to hold a ceremony on their five-year anniversary in July, whether they’ll be legally allowed to marry by then or not.
