Guam Becomes First US Territory to Recognize Same-Sex Marriage

Guam is the first US territory to recognize gay marriage, after a federal judge struck down the prohibition.
A US district court chief judge issued the decision after a hearing on Friday morning. Attorneys representing the government of Guam said in a May 18th court document that “should a court strike current Guam law, they would respect and follow such a decision”.
Loretta Pangelinan and Kathleen Aguero filed the lawsuit in April after the 28-year-old women were denied a marriage license. Guam residents are US citizens, but they do not have the right to cast ballots for president.
