New gender-neutral forms for NYC marriage licenses
Same-sex couples can apply for marriage licenses in NYC using new gender-neutral forms online
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Same-sex couples can start applying for marriage licenses in New York City using online forms that now feature gender-neutral terminology.

The Office of the City Clerk made new forms available on its website Tuesday.

The forms allow couples to enter information for "bride," ''groom" or the gender-neutral "spouse." Previously, they only allowed for "bride" and "groom."



Although couples can begin applying for the $35 licenses, they likely won't be issued until July 25 ' the first business day after the state's law legalizing gay marriage becomes active.

State law requires couples to wait 24 hours to wed, though a waiver can be requested of a judge.

New York legalized same-sex marriages on June 24.
