Michael Adam Ferguson and J. Seth Anderson may well be Utah’s first gay couple to legally marry in the state of Utah. The couple, hearing that U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby has declared Utah’s Amendment 3 as unconstitutional, went to Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen’s office asking for a marriage license.

“Our application for a marriage license was just accepted by the state of Utah,” Ferguson wrote on his Facebook wall.

Deputy Salt Lake County Clerk Wany Morrison was in tears as she handed the couple their license to marry.

Seth is a Facebook friend of mine and seems like an all around great guy. I’ve been following his feed in real time, and he now reports that they’re married:

“Me and my new husband!! My polygamous Mormon great grandparents would be so proud!”

The following picture accompanies his tweet:


Congratulations, guys!
