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.
