While the UK and California have recently passed landmark laws to legalise gay marriage, Nevada - with Las Vegas as the marriage capital of the world - has been unusually slow off the mark.
The Nevada Legislature has this year begun a four-year process of repealing a ban on same-sex marriage that was passed in 2002, but in the meantime Las Vegas chapels can only offer commitment ceremonies to gay couples, but these ceremonies aren't legally binding.
This does seem an odd position for Nevada, with its 'anything goes' approach to advertising the charms of Las Vegas. Gay marriage seems to be the one issue that it is behind the times with - so we wait with interest to see how this progresses.
In the meantime, take a look at available Commitment Ceremonies here.
