Clela Rorex, who served as Boulder County Clerk & Recorder in the 1970s, stands outside the clerk's offices in Boulder on July 2, 2014. In 1975, Rorex stumbled into history when two men asked her for a marriage license, which she granted. She issued a total of six licenses before Attorney General J.D. MacFarlane intervened.
