Guam, Other US Territories Want SSM
A clerk in Guam rejected the first same-sex couple application for marriage. The couple wishes to marry in their homeland for family to attend, and doesn't want to wait for US Supreme Court rulings. The territory falls under the 9th District, which has already allowed SSM. The couple is sure the request will follow suit with the previous rulings.
Puerto Rico had a similar situation recently, which falls under the 1st District court. Last month, Puero Rico stopped defending the ban on SSM.
