Indiana Will Not Recognize Same-Sex Marriages From June

July 9, 2014
By

State agencies are being instructed by the governor’s office to not recognize same-sex marriages that were conducted following the federal court order.

Hundreds of marriage licenses were issued for same-sex couples following the ruling made June 25. An appeals court halted the ruling three days later as the Indiana Attorney General’s Office issued an appeal.

Gov. Mike Pence’s office has issued a memo to state agencies to go on as if the marriage licenses were not issued during the three days following the federal courts decision.

The memo noted that Indiana will recognize the out-of-state marriage between Amy Sandler and Nikole Quasney of Munster, which complies with an order from the Court of Appeals.

The couple received the exception due to a terminal illness.
