By Tatia Woldt. Thomas Topovski cried as the Clark County clerk announced to cheers that gay marriage licenses would be issued, bringing same-sex unions to the marriage capital of the world amid a flurry of court decisions this week that tore down legal barriers nationwide. Topovski and Jefferson Ruck, his partner of 14 years, returned to the marriage bureau in Las Vegas on Thursday after standing in line for hours the day before. About 10 same-sex couples were waiting as the announcement came shortly after 5 p. For gay couples in Nevada, the licenses ended long-felt frustration that increased by the day as they watched legal wrangling go in favor of others elsewhere, while they could do nothing but wait. A Supreme Court decision Monday that denied appeals from five states seeking to retain their bans on same-sex unions effectively made gay marriage legal in about 30 states, over the arguments of opponents who say states should have the right to decide whether gay marriage is legal.
Same-sex marriage has been legally recognized in the U. A unanimous three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit had ruled two days earlier that the state's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Same-sex marriage was previously banned by an amendment to the Constitution of Nevada adopted in Nevada has recognized same-sex unions since October 1, , through domestic partnerships , after the state Legislature enacted legislation overriding Governor Jim Gibbons 's veto. The state maintains a domestic partnership registry that enables same-sex couples to enjoy the same rights as married couples.
