(KFOR) A woman legally married to another woman in Iowa has been denied her driver's license in her home state of Oklahoma.

After getting her named changed on her Social Security card without any problem, Sara Doolin was turned away by two tag agencies.

Doolin and her partner Jennifer Maib traveled to Iowa to make their union legal.

Doolin was first turned away at the Bethany Tag Agency. She then tried another one, Red Cap Tag Agency.

"When I went to the second one, we went through, I paid $10, I had my new license," says Doolin. "They had invalidated my old one."

When they realized two women's names were on her marriage certificate they waved her down in the parking lot demanding the ID back and leaving her with a new teary-eyed driver's license.

"Every time I hand that to someone it reminds me of what happened," she says.
