Two months after the Iowa Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, the number of applications is climbing in parts of eastern Iowa.
County recorders say 100 same-sex marriage applications have been issued in Johnson County and another 71 in Linn County. Recorders say almost 75 percent of the applicants are women.
Recorders say in about 30 percent of applications, both partners are from out of state.
In April, Linn County recorded 182 marriage applications overall, up from 136 applications a year ago. But those numbers didn't carry through in May, when there were four fewer applications for marriage than in 2008.
