Norwalk, CT (PressExposure) November 21, 2008 -- Mary C. Pugh, the busiest JP in the state of Connecticut announces her policy of upgrading her past civil union clients to a marriage if they come to Norwalk, CT for the ceremony. Mary was recently seen performing one of the first same gender marriages in CT on ABC, CBS, NBC and the top CT channels, CT 9 and CT12.

The state of CT recently made same gender marriages legal. Same gender couples can now get married in CT. There is No residency requirement, No witnesses and a couple from out of state simply needs to come to CT, go the the town clerk’s office where they want to get married, present a photo id and proof of age (driver’s license is accepted), pay $30 and get a marriage license. They need to tell the town clerk who will be the officiant for the ceremony. CT residents can get their license in the town of the ceremony or the town where either of them are residents. Couples who previously were united via a civil union can upgrade the status of their relationship to a marriage. The current civil union does not have to be dissolved. A same gender marriage can take place in one day, there is no waiting period.

After the ceremony, the officiant signs and dates the license and returns it to the town clerk where the ceremony was held. To obtain legal proof of marriage, the couple should request a certified copy of the license from the town clerk – each certified copy is $10.

Mary C. Pugh is proud to offer a free upgrade to any of her couples who previously had her officiate at their civil union. Just contact Mary at 203 838 1038 or email her at For more information, go to
