BAY SHORE - Help was offered today for same-sex couples looking to get married on Long Island.

A meeting held tonight offered information on what gay couples need to know and do if they plan to wed after the same-sex marriage law goes into effect July 24.

Attorneys, accountants and town clerks were on hand to take questions from the audience about the process of getting married and offer advice on other things they thought couples should know about.
