What a great day! Su's birthday and this!

From the website today March 3, 2010

Marriage License Information
The minimum age for marriage in the District of Columbia is 18 years or 16 years with the consent of a parent or guardian. Proof of age for the applicant's must be shown and may be demonstrated by driver's licenses, birth certificates, passports, or similar official documents. The Marriage License Application fee is $35.00 (this fee will be waived if a Domestic Partnership Certificate registered under D.C. Code §32-702 is presented at the time of application). The Certificate of Marriage fee is $10.00. All fees must be paid by cash or money order (made out to Clerk, D.C. Superior Court) for the license to be issued.

Yes, although we were married 5 years ago in August, as of today we can apply for a marriage license where we live. And what a bonus! Since we already have a Domestic Partnership Certificate we don't have to pay the $35 application fee. It just keeps getting better and better!

We do plan to take advantage of this opportunity to get legally married soon. A big shout out to all who have fought so long for legal marriage and will continue to fight. Thank you! -Monica
