Hawaii’s Legislature passed a law last month allowing gay marriage, and same-sex couples are now taking advantage.
Hawaii’s marriage laws allow for couples to register for a license and then be married the same day, which is a process conducive to tourism. Research from the University of Hawaii estimates the state will see a $217 million boost in tourism over the next three years.
