When I read stuff like this, I think, "Seriously, folks?? Really?? None of you ever thought that this would end up being a huge freaking public mess???"

Before my husband and I went to New York to get married, I not only read every single word on the State of New York's website about marriage licenses and who's eligible and what paperwork was required, and blah, blah, blah, but I also called the clerk in the township that was going to be doing the license and spoke with her personally to make sure we had everything in order before we drove 6-1/2 hours through Canada to get married.

My biggest fear was that we'd end up having our day ruined by a bigoted clerk that would treat us badly. Fortunately, she was wonderful and her staff seemed genuinely excited for us. It was great.

But this woman in Iowa.... I knew she had good intentions, but trying to get around the rules like she did is always a bad idea, no matter how well-intended.
