Tiffany and Wendy Titus have been married for more than a month now. They are one of 174 same-sex couples who were issued a marriage license in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. But just two weeks ago, a judge demanded that Bruce Hanes, the Register of Wills in Montgomery County, stop issuing the licenses.
"We completely expected that ruling," said Tiffany. "What he did was illegal, so we knew eventually someone was going to say, 'listen, you can't do that.'"
Even though they have a license, and it's legally filed, the state of Pennsylvania doesn't recognize the Tituses as a married couple. But regardless, to them, Hanes is a hero.
"I just think it's pretty awesome that someone is willing to stand up for people like us, that it matters to, and he's put himself out there and that's a huge deal for us," said Wendy.
Since we first told the Tituses story, back on August 14, Tiffany said strangers come up to them, showing their support.
"It's like 53, 57% now that accept it or want it, so it's going to happen. So they need to, I think, kind of move out of the way and let it go through, and put the focus somewhere else."
In the meantime, the couple said they will continue to fight to keep this license.
"For us there is no more waiting," said Tiffany. "We're in it to win it and we're just going to keep pushing forward and we're going to see how far we can take this until we can say our marriage is completely legal and no one can touch it anymore."
The Tituses said they plan to meet with their attorney on Friday, to take the case to the next level.
Hanes, who issued those marriage licenses, is expected to appeal the ruling.
