Magistrate stops performing marriages

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) - At least one Iowa magistrate has decided he'll no longer perform marriages at all.
The Des Moines Register reports 3rd district magistrate Francis Honrath of Larchwood will stop performing the ceremony.
He says it isn't all about the same-sex issue.

The Iowa attorney general says any court-official has the right to stop conducting marriages, but has to be fair to couples on both sides.
