WASHINGTON - One gay couple met on a Star Trek fan site, another dancing at a country western bar. Some have been together for months, others more than a decade.
About 150 pairs had something in common Wednesday, though, applying for wedding licenses on the first day same-sex unions became legal in the nation's capital.
The mood at the marriage bureau inside the city's Moultrie Courthouse was celebratory. Couples clapped, called out "Congratulations" and cupcakes and tulips were handed out. One family said it was important to show up the first day.
