So my question is. I live in one town and my fiance lives in another town.
But we aren’t sure on which town clerk we should go to get our marriage license from?
Can we go to either one?

Are you both within the same county where you’ll be married? If so, it doesn’t matter which. Otherwise you have to go to the one whichever county clerk’s office you’re getting married in.

Most likely, if you are in the same state, and that is the state you are getting married in, you can go to either. Laws very from state to state, so I would do a google search for state laws, and/or I would call your county clerk. They deal with this daily, so they likely know the rules.

I’m not sure how it is in your state, but in mine it doesn’t matter which county clerk you go to as long as it is in PA and you are getting married in PA.

It depends on your state. Some states require you get the license in the county you’re marrying in. Other states will let you get it anywhere as long as you marry in that particular state.

Here it doesn’t matter either, as long as you get the license in the state you are marrying in you should be fine.

@oxstardust421xo: As all the PPs mention it varies state by state. Both here in IL and where I’m marrying in WI you have to go to the specific county.

We just got ours and on the state website it specifically says you can get the license at any courthouse, even if you’re not a resident in the county.

A quick google search brought me to this site, which states that you can get it from any clerk as long as you’re getting married in that state.

Usually you just need to stay in state.

I believe you go to the county where you are getting married, at least in my county.

Just pulled this from NH.gov: Contact the Bureau of Vital Records at 603-271-4651

Depends on the State…
Some States / Provinces / Countries issue one Marriage License State-wide … while others you have to have it issued by the Jurisdiction (county / city) you are being married in.
I’d use the link that @Duncan: provided above in Reply # 13 to see the Requirements for NH

Thanks for all your answers bee’s!
@Duncan: Thank you. It states that
To be married in NH you do not have to
establish residency. A couple wishing to marry in the
State of NH may complete a marriage application at any
NH city/town clerk’s office regardless of their place of
residence. This includes out-of-state residents as well.
Once a valid marriage license is issued, the couple will be
free to marry within any city/town in New Hampshire.
So I guess that’s my answer. 😀
