On Oct. 8, Angela Schaefer (left), 31, and longtime partner Jennifer Schaefer, 28, got an application for a marriage license at the office of the county clerk in the Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe. They did so after Chief District Judge Kevin Moriarty directed the clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples without fear of being prosecuted under Kansas law. On Tuesday, the Kansas Supreme Court lifted its stay of Moriarty’s order, allowing same-sex marriages to proceed in the county.
