Marriage License in Wash. State

On Thurs. Dec. 6, my fiance and I went to our county courthouse in Spokane, Wash., to get our marriage license for our 12-12-12 wedding.  It didn't occur to us that it was the first day that same sex couples in Washington State could get a marriage license.  He and I were the only one-man-one-woman couple there getting our marriage license.  The newly revised form had each of us write our name, address and birthday, and check one of three checkboxes indicating if we were the bride, groom, or "spouse".  Same-sex marriage supporters were there inside the county auditors office. They set up a big table with coffee and cookies, some of which had a toothpick with a small rainbow flag stuck into them.  The people were all smiles and asked, "would you like coffee and a cookie?"  We declined.
