When we were filming "Silly Laws" the California marriage licenses were as we depicted--Party A and Party B. Because of the outcry the laws were changes. You can read about the changes at the link below.
'Bride' and 'groom' will soon return to state marriage license forms
October 07, 2008 By Jennifer Garza Sacramento Bee
Rachel Bird and Gideon Codding have thought of themselves as bride and groom since their August church ceremony.
Now the state of California agrees.
The Roseville couple had refused to sign the state's new marriage license forms which had replaced the words "bride" and "groom" with "Party A" and "Party B." Because of this, their marriage was not recognized by the state. The two sued.
