First Same Sex Marriage Performed in Ohio County;Second in West Virginia


 Thursday marked a first for Ohio County, after Judge David Sims performed the first same-sex marriage in Wheeling.

The marriage of Mark Fetty and Daniel Law marked their 10th anniversary. Both Fetty and Law are from Bridgeport and said they have been waiting a long time for this.

Just recently, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and Governor Earl Ray Tomblin issued statements saying they would not fight the same-sex marriage ban after higher courts ruled them unconstitutional.

This is the second same-sex marriage in West Virginia.
