First Gay Couple Married In State

The first gay couple to be married in Arkansas live in Fort Smith.

Jennifer Rambo and Kristin Seaton became the first gay couple in the state to be married after driving to Eureka Springs to get their marriage license.

They met in Aug, 2010 at the University of Arkansas, and when the two found out late Friday evening (May 9) they could legally marry, they immediately set out to do so.

The couple waited outside the courthouse for the building to open, and then the unexpected occurred. The couple said they were asked to leave.

The two began to pray, and eventually, they were able to get their certificate.

The newly married couple say they plan to have a ceremony in October.
