New Haven, Conn. (AP) Gay couples in Connecticut are close to being able to walk down the aisle.

The Connecticut Superior Court is set to issue the final judgment in the case that allows same-sex marriages in Connecticut. Once the judgment is entered, couples can pick up marriage license forms at town and city clerk's offices.

Some couples say they plan to get married right away.

Civil unions have been legal since October of 2005, and between then and July of this year more than 2,000 licenses were issued.

The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled in favor of legalizing gay marriage on October 10th and new marriage applications already reflect the change.

Once the final judgment is issued, Connecticut joins Massachusetts as the only states where gay marriage is legal. The unions were legal in California until voters approved a ban last week.
