The Indiana Attorney General's office says same-sex couples who married in the two days after the state's gay marriage ban was first struck down should confirm their marriages were properly recorded.

The Attorney General's office sent a memo to county clerks saying those couples faced unusual circumstances because same-sex marriages were allowed for a short time before a ruling against the ban was put on hold by a federal appeals court.

The Times of Munster reports those marriages might not be legally valid if couples didn't solemnize their marriage within 60 days of receiving a marriage license or the county clerks didn't record them within 3 days.
The office says those couples could obtain a new license and complete the necessary steps to avoid any uncertainty.
