Gay Marriage Rings LargeWhen the state of Vermont adopted civil unions in 2000, within 6 months there were 1,704 of them established, but now that full marriage rights have been adopted the same rush hasn’t materialized. The city and town clerks in the state have issued only a handful of licenses.
The adoption of gay marriage in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Iowa has diluted what was once Vermont’s monopoly and a tourism draw.
No gay couples have asked for marriage licenses, which are good for 60 days from date of issue, in the Vermont towns of Manchester, Brattleboro and Montpelier. Three licenses have been issued in Burlington and four in Rutland.
