Greenwich has been the destination for people on a quest for big Powerball jackpots and now the town is seeing a boom in interest for same-sex marriages.
The town started becoming a popular place for gay weddings around Nov. 12, when the first licenses were issued to same-sex couples after a decision by the Supreme Court. Couples from New York, and as far away as Texas, Nevada, Colorado and California have come to Greenwich to wed, according to Greenwich Time.
All 69 of the same-sex couples who were issued marriage licenses since the beginning of the year were from out of state, according to the town's vital records registrar.
Of the 122 same-sex couples married in Greenwich since November, only 14 of them were Connecticut residents.
Stamford is also hosting dozens of gay marriages. The city has issued 71 marriage licenses to same-sex couples from out of state since November.
