Jack Evans and George Harris, two men in their 80s, are the first same-sex couple to be married legally in Dallas County.

The Dallas Morning News reported their union this morning, after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, making same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. The couple, who have been together 54 years, ceremoniously tied the knot in Preston Hollow last year. They now reside at Sylvan Thirty.

Another Oak Cliff couple, Kenneth Denson and Gabriel Mendoza-Denson, also were among the first in line to be married this morning, and their photo has been all over the news and Twitter today. They temporarily closed their shop, Red Pegasus Games & Comics, for the occasion. The shop is featured in the July Advocate, which is being delivered this weekend.

    How exciting for this couple! Just an FYI the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was struck down in 2013. The defining case today was Obergefell v. Hodges.
