Same Sex Couple From Rapid City Gets Married

April 26, 2014, 5:58 PM by Leland Steva

Same Sex Couple From Rapid City Gets Married
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -

A same-sex couple from Rapid City took the long trip to the Twin Cities today to say their vows, but their journey isn't over yet.

It may be quiet here now, but inside the church this afternoon Nancy and Jennie Rosenbrahn became legally married in Minnesota.

The couple combined their two last names to make their new name after exchanging their vows. Nancy and Jennie have been together for 27 years, and they traveled over 600 miles today to stand at the altar. The couple is happy to finally be able to be married.

“All of us have dug extremely deep to make sure we were right. So when we come out of that, we all know who exactly who we are. Nobody can tell us anything different about who I am. I've been to that wall I come back from it,” Nancy Rosenbrahn said.

The couple is also looking to be the first couple to challenge the same-sex marriage laws in South Dakota. Legislation passed in the state in 1996 banned same-sex marriage in South Dakota.
