But under North Carolina law, two people of the same gender are not allowed to marry.
Couple after couple is turned away for the same reason. But no matter what the law allows, one couple says they are married in spirit.
When talking about marriage Elizabeth Eve maker her point quite clear.
"We're talking about civil rights," said the grandmother of four.
When talking about Civil Rights this couple is in agreement that there should be a separation of Church and State.
"Scripture is left up to the individual interpretation and I'm a minister in the UCC church and our theology speaks to the ever speaking God," said Eve adding, "it's about being a group of people in our beloved country who are not given the basic civil rights."
