MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas judge has denied a marriage license for a same-sex couple who said their application had been accepted with open arms a day earlier.

KMAN-AM (https://bit.ly/1ticu7G ) reports Darcie Bonhenblust and her partner, Joleen Hickman, found out Friday morning their application had been denied.

The two say the Riley County clerk told them Thursday when they filed their application there was a three-day waiting period and they could come back Tuesday to pick up their license.

But on Friday morning they received an order from Judge Meryl Wilson denying the license. Bohnenblust called the rejection disheartening but says she anticipates it eventually will come through.

Johnson County on Friday issued what is believed to be the state’s first marriage license to a same-sex couple.
