Kershaw County Probate Judge Harriett Pierce said it currently is illegal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in South Carolina and, therefore, she is bound to follow the law. Marriage licenses are obtained from each county’s probate judge. “As long as our state constitution bans gay marriages, I have to uphold it until I hear differently from (S.C. Attorney General) Alan Wilson,” Pierce said.
