LAFAYETTE, Ind., July 10 (UPI) --
Same-sex couples seeking to marry could be jailed for submitting a marriage license application in Tippecanoe County, Ind., the county clerk warned.
Indiana's marriage license application has spaces designated for "male applicant" and "female applicant," and Tippecanoe County Clerk Crista Coffey noted only one man and one woman may seek marriage in the state.
"Applicants for marriage do sign their paperwork under penalty of perjury," Coffey said, adding two men or two women applying to marry could trigger the 1997 law.
