Let married same-sex couples get their name changed on license

My partner and I got married in Washington DC in September. We obtained a certified copy of our marriage license and I used it to get my name on my social security card changed. When I went to get my name changed on my driver license I was told I could not because same-sex marriage isn't legal here. Now my id doesn't match my social security card, my insurance cards, my bank account info, etc. This is going to cause major problems.

      To deny them the right to change their name is an abomination of our civil liberties guaranteed by our beloved constitution!!!!
