Pennsylvania couple wants gay marriage validated

ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Two northwestern Pennsylvania women want a judge to validate their marriage, which occurred with a license issued by a rogue county clerk before this year's landmark decision that nixed a state law defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

The Erie Times-News ( ) reports Tiffany Jo Titus and Wendy Allison Titus were married in Erie County in August after obtaining a license from Montgomery County Orphans' Court Clerk D. Bruce Hanes. Hanes issued about 200 licenses last year after Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced she wouldn't defend Pennsylvania's marriage law.

A federal judge, in May, has since struck down Pennsylvania's law, but the status of the women's marriage remains in "limbo," according to their attorney.

An Erie County judge has scheduled a Sept. 15 hearing on their request to have the marriage validated.
