Since Obama took office, Millennials have suffered greatly under his administration. Youth unemployment has skyrocketed, student loan debt continues to increase and due to financial concerns, many Millennials have put off once-common early adulthood goals of home ownership and marriage.

New speculation has begun since the Duggar daughter has been married to Ben Seewald for over two months and a full-body photo of the bride has not been seen since before Christmas.
The couple exchanged vows on Nov. 1 and has been busy enjoying married life ever since.

Although the report states that the clerks listed multiple reasons for their decision, with the state's limbo over gay marriage being one of them, the decision to stop performing courthouse weddings is due largely to trying to avoid performing same-sex weddings. more >>
