The first Marriage license was going to be issued on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 but the many that lined up went home with nothing. Seems that the law makers didn't know if they could issue them or not. It was Government confusion to say the least. Finally, on Thursday the licenses were actually issued to about 40 same sex couples.
Same sex couples are being married on a daily basis now in Las Vegas. There are a very small group of Wedding Chapels that are refusing to marry same sex couples but there are so many that are, there is really no reason for any couple to press the discrimination issue.
Gay Marriage will bring in an extra 100 or so million dollars annually to the Las Vegas economy. That is about what one good convention does in one week so it isn't really going to make or break Las Vegas. The reason it will be an historic event is because it will finally have the relationship that it should have with Gay People. Las Vegas has always been Gay Friendly but Nevada, not so much. Allowing Gay marriages will keep the relationship between the City and Gay People on very friendly terms.255 Marriage licenses issued in first week.
