Officials all over the state of California have been frantically issuing marriage licenses to gay couples in the past 2 days, since the Supreme Court lifted the ban on same-sex marriages. The number of marriages in the last couple of days has spiked to over 2,700, more than the average for an entire week in a typical June.

The L.A. Times reports, “among the most dramatic increases in business Tuesday were Ventura County, which with 798,000 residents saw more than 20 times the normal trafficâ€"from two to 45â€"and Riverside County, population 2 million, which saw an increase from an average of nine applicants on a weekday in June to 133.” Stats for California Gay Marriages Trending: Older & Mild
