Colleen Condon and her fiancee, Nichols Bleckley, showed up Wednesday at Charleston County's Probate Court to make a statement after a court decision seemed to clear the way for same-sex marriage in South Carolina.
They could end up making history, as the state's first same-sex couple to receive a marriage license. Condon, a lawyer and Charleston County councilwoman, and Bleckley, who works at Blackbaud, smiled, posed for pictures and gave each other a brief kiss as they filled out their application, paid $70 and talked to reporters. Then the unexpected happened: Probate Judge Irvin Condon released a statement saying he would grant their marriage license Thursday morning, after the 24-hour waiting period expired, unless a court stopped him.
Such was the legal and political roller coaster of same-sex marriage across much of the nation three days after the U.S.
Condon and Bleckley weren't the only same-sex couple seeking a marriage license Wednesday in South Carolina - only the most successful. Richland County Deputy Probate Clerk Kim Lewis said her office won't issue any licenses until the state Supreme Court rules on whether Charleston County's license application was properly accepted. And in Greenville, a probate judge rejected three applications for same-sex marriages, but those gathered at the courthouse cheered when they heard of the Charleston decision. Greenville County Probate Judge Debora Faulkner said no licenses would be issued there because pending court cases could have different results, forcing her to void a license.


By the end of Wednesday, at least 14 other same-sex couples in Charleston County had also requested licenses.
There are now two pending legal actions that could shape how soon gay marriage arrives in South Carolina. If the state Supreme Court grants Wilson's request to block the Charleston County licenses, then the outcome of that case could be the final say in South Carolina. Despite the confusion and fluidity of exactly when gay marriage will become legal in South Carolina, nothing that unfolded Wednesday seemed to question legal experts who have said the U.S.
Jeff Ayers, interim executive director of SC Equality, said he was stunned by Judge Condon's move in Charleston County and expected other states to issue licenses before South Carolina. But Wilson has said he is following the state's constitution, which 78 percent of state voters decided in 2006 should be amended to define marriage as between a man and a woman. Bleckley said the couple had ruled out the idea of having a ceremony performed in a state where gay marriage already was legal.

Late Wednesday, state Attorney General Alan Wilson filed a nine-page motion asking the South Carolina Supreme Court to halt gay marriage licenses.
Supreme Court refused to reconsider a series of appellate court decisions legalizing same-sex marriages.
Probate Judges Association, said his office also won't grant same-sex marriage licenses until a federal lawsuit here is resolved. Supreme Court soon will decide whether to grant Wilson's request to block Condon's plans to issues licenses.
Wilson's attorneys say that the legal issues around whether same-sex marriage is legal in South Carolina remain unsettled and cited U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's move Wednesday to temporarily block gay marriage in Idaho.
