LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Same-sex couples who try to apply for a marriage license in Indiana could face perjury charges.
On the application, there's a section specifically designated for a male applicant and a female applicant. That means when same-sex couples fill out the application, one of them is lying -- which is a Class D Felony.
Same-sex marriage advocates say the law is not fair.
"It's really disappointing to see that," said Becky Ross, a representative of Pride Lafayette. "As a member of the LGB community, to know that if I want to go in and apply for that marriage license to be equal with all of my straight friends and the other straight people across the state, that I can face serious penalty."
A Class-D felony carries a possible penalty of up to three years behind bars, and a fine of up to $10,000.
