Frontier and Red Willow County Courthouses will no longer do Marriage Ceremonies

After the the passing of same

sex marriage some courthouses

will no longer be participating in

marriage ceremonies.

According to the Nebraska

Judicial Ethics Committee

Opinion you will either do all

marriages or none.

Frontier County and Red

Willow County have both

chosen to no longer perform

marriage ceremonies. According

to Ron Werkmeister “You will

have to find a minsiter or a lay

person who is willing to do the

marriage ceremony.”

You will still be able to

get marriage licenses at either

county court, just no more


The Supreme Court had

ruled on Friday, June 26th that

states cannot ban same-sex


The United States is now the

21st country to legalize samesex

marriage nationwide.

Married same-sex couples

will now have the same legal

rights and benefits as married

heterosexual couples and

will be recognized on official

documents such as birth and

death certificates.

“The US Supreme Court

ruled in a 5-4 decision on the

validity of same sex marriage

in cases that established rights

for same-sex couples in all

fifty states on June 26, 2015.

The Court held that under the

Fourteenth Amendment to the

United States Constitution,

States are required to license a

marriage between two people

of the same sex and recognize a

marriage between two people of

the same sex when the marriage

was lawfully performed in

another state.” Said NACO

Executive Director Larry Dix.

Frontier County Clerk Darla

Walthers stated “I was elected

to abide by the law and that is

what I will do when it comes

to issuing same sex marriage


Not a lot has changed to

apply for a marriage license, but

now instead of having Bride and

Groom only on your license it

will show as Groom/Party A and

Bride/Party B.
