Gay marriages begin in Wisconsin after ruling

Posted:
 MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two women have gotten married in Wisconsin after a federal judge struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriages.
   Renee Currie and Shari Roll, both of Madison, were first in line at the county courthouse in Madison minutes after U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb issued her ruling striking down the law. They were married on the street just a block from the Capitol.
   Clerks in Madison and Milwaukee began issuing marriage licenses even though there was confusion over whether Crabb's ruling allowed for that to happen immediately.
   Roll says she was shaking and the whole thing felt like a dream. Currie says she was elated and proud of Wisconsin.
