Same-Sex Marriage Dilemma In Illinois

Posted: Updated:

 

On November 20, 2013, same-sex marriage in Illinois will become official.
     
Governor Quinn will sign the legislation in a special ceremony in Chicago.
     
The law will go into effect June 2014, giving couples the green light to plan a wedding but there is some concern that the bill may not be clear on what businesses have to honor these new rights.
     
The legislation says religious institutions or clergy don't have to allow gay weddings but it's not clear if wedding-related businesses can refuse service based on religious grounds.
    
Some fear this could lead to court battles.
