Do you realize how much Utah loves marriage? They love it so much. And the gays broke the record.

The clerks office closed at 5, but people still arriving for marriage licenses. Lot of hugs and happy tears.

Because they love marriage just as much as the rest of the state.

This man rushed here as fast as he could to sign a marriage license with his partner.

There were even more people in line who wanted to get married, but they couldn't because the county building closed.

The emotion being displayed inside the SL CountyClerks office right now is amazing. Historic day. @KSL5TV
