The Bexar County Clerk says he’s ready for a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that would lift the Texas ban on same-sex marriage. The ruling could come as early as Monday morning. If that happens, Bexar County is
ready to immediately grant marriage licenses and speed-up the matrimonial process for couples.
Bexar County Clerk Gerry Rickhoff has been in office about 20 years. He generally presides over the process of granting marriage licenses for heterosexual couples four or five times a week. Rickhoff is now prepared to do the same thing for same-sex couples, if the Supreme Court rules Texas and other states must grant marriage licenses.
