The Orange County clerk-recorder will open its doors Saturday because of the demand for same-sex wedding licenses. Orange County may be the closest place for Los Angeles-area residents to get a marriage license before Monday. Los Angeles County issued only one same-sex marriage license on Friday -- to two plaintiffs who filed the federal lawsuit that eventually struck down Proposition 8. At least one gay couple were upset that L.A. County wouldn't reopen its offices until Monday. But in Orange County, Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen said his offices in Santa Ana, Fullerton and Laguna Hills would be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. "We're listening to what our customers tell us they want," Nguyen said.

A "typical mid-range office arrangement"--executive desk, high-back chair, credenza and two visitors chairs--costs about $2,026 to rent for 12 months, the Furniture Rental Assn. of America said. The same furniture would cost about $3,371 to buy. That typical office arrangement usually costs between $129 per month for basic furniture to $200 per month for luxury rentals, the group said. And the selection is much broader than it once was.
