At just after 10 a.m. Friday, U.S. court houses were flooded with couples looking to make their love official after the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage bans were unconstitutional, effectively allowing gay people throughout the nation to get married. The landmark decision means even the most conservative states were to issue gay marriage licenses, including Texas, where the attorney general specifically asked clerks not to do so--but many did anyway.

It's official. After 54 years together, Jack Evans (left) and George Harris are married.
