KIMT News 3 – Tomorrow is the first day that same sex couples will be able to legally get married in the state of Minnesota.

Because this has been a controversial topic, some organizations are planning protests against the couples but Minnesota law enforcement is prepared for the worst.

Captain John Sherwin of the Rochester Police Department said, “”we have officers that are on duty available for response if things get out of hand. You know, our goal in this is to make sure people have the right to protest if they choose and our job is to keep the peace.”

Minnesota isn’t the only state in the Midwest that has legalized marriage for same sex couples.

The Iowa Supreme Court made it official on April 3rd, 2009 and couples across the state could legally tie the knot on April 27th, 2009.

Iowa was the third state in the U.S. to legalize gay marriage.
