A florister in Chattanooga, Tenn.
is refusing to accept a same-day marriage license.
The city clerk’s office says it has issued a denial of the license because the couple who filed the petition had filed it without proper information.
The clerk’s statement says they filed the application because they were “concerned about a potential conflict of interest” and because they felt “their application for a same day marriage license was not complete.”
The floristry is now offering a $20 donation to the Human Rights Campaign and $50 to a charity of choice for anyone who has not yet registered for the marriage license, and the clerk says they will return the money in a timely fashion.
