Lesbian couple to wed, and want to make it legal
Associated Press
ST. LOUIS - As Missouri lawmakers debate a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriages, a lesbian couple will wed this weekend and ask St. Louis County to recognize the marriage. Lesley Proud and Sally Nelson have lived together for 15 years. They have raised two sons, been active in the PTA and operate a successful catering business.
On Saturday, they plan to wed at the Eliot Unitarian Chapel in Kirkwood. The Rev. Daniel O'Connell said he has performed marriages between gay and lesbian couples before, but those ceremonies carried no legal weight.
