Hi Paigey!  

Did you get your license with the intent of getting married soon?  Or was it for your April 6, 2013 date you have by your name?  I thought they were only good for a certain number of days.

I was married once before 10 years ago.  My ex needed surgeries right away to save his life.  His COBRA insurance just ended and we could not get anyone else to take him.  BUT my insurance allowed pre-existing conditions as long as the lapse in insurance was under 60 days.  So that’s what we did.  It was quite a pickle for me.

We also were torn about telling anyone or not.  We were engaged only 4 days (well he never proposed technically).  I don’t quite agree with the “keeping it a secret” now that I’ve gone through it, but I will say that the excitement was quite lackluster from our families.  I had told them all to not make a big deal about it, we were going to redo it all that summer.  Not that they were going to make a big deal anyway, but his parents offered to fly out to be witnesses.  We were going to do it all over and have the families fly out and meet.  In the end we were so poor and we never redid any of it.  It just came and went, barely a card from anyone we knew.  It was very depressing for me.

Some people look at is a purely legal but aren’t married until their wedding event day.

There are some on here that got married secretly, I hope they chime in.
