Same-sex Marriage Rises at Berwyn

Berwyn has become one of the Cook County’s top three suburbs for same-sex marriage licenses during the past year..

The Cook County Clerk’s office released statistics on Feb 18, almost a year after a federal judge gave the go-ahead for Cook County to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The statistics show 59 marriage licenses were issued in Berwyn. Neighboring Oak Park was in second place with 119 licenses. North suburban Evanston was in first place, with 142 licenses.
