WISCONSIN - More people in Wisconsin got married in 2014. The number of marriages in the state is the highest its been since 2007, according to a state marriage report. Gay marriage could be one of the reasons for the boost.
Gay marriage became legal in Wisconsin in 2014. More than 500 same-sex couples got married in the first month it was legal.
However, some local county clerks don't expect gay marriage to make a difference in the number of marriages in the Northwoods. Before gay marriage was legal, gay couples were only allowed to get a domestic partnership. Very few of those were issued in the Northwoods.
