SL: Marriage License

After all of the bridal festivities last week, I went to the DC marriage bureau to get our marriage license! There are a lot of strange things about DC's policies. One: the groom doesn't have to be there! Two: they only ask you two questions besides contact information- "have you been previously married?" and "are you related to each other?" Three: the marriage license never expires. If we were to use the same officiant and our marital status had not changed, we could technically get married in fifty years. Four: Despite the fact that you do not have to use the certificate within a certain amount of days, you still have to turn it in 10 days after the marriage has taken place, otherwise it's not valid. Oh, DC, you are funny!
Anyway, glad it's off my list!!
