Same-sex couples will then be immediately eligible to pick up their marriage licenses, and some reportedly plan to take their vows straightaway.

Even as LGBT activists across the country continue to protest the loss of same-sex couples' right to marry in California, gay couples in Connecticut are preparing to hit the altar.

Superior court Judge jonathan Silbert entered a final judgment Wednesday morning on the state's gay marriage case, which was decided by the Connecticut court in a 4-3 ruling on October 10 that legalized same-sex marriage, reports the Associated Press. Following the judgment, gay couples were immediately eligible to pick up their marriage licenses.

Some reportedly plan to take their vows straightaway.

According to the AP, Connecticut's health department has retooled their marriage applications with two boxes marked "bride/groom/spouse" in place of two separate sections that had previously been marked "bride" and "groom."
