Couples have been lined up since six thirty this morning to get married at the courthouse in Indianapolis.

A half hour before the doors opened, more than two dozen people were waiting for the second day of the struck-down ban on gay marriage in Indiana. That line quickly grew to more than a hundred.

Those couples follow the roughly 250 marriage licenses issued Wednesday and the more than 150 weddings performed there in Marion county.

Melody Layne says, “I'm so proud to be able to tell our daughter that we were part of this and that her generation isn't going to have to worry about this stuff.”
Steven Stolen says, “It's a day for us to really be proud we live here and we've always said that you know this is not about getting in a fight or anything..this is not about anything more than being treated fairly.”

Some of the plaintiffs who filed suit against the state's ban held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to share how the decision will affect their families.
