I’m not sure the exact answer to your question, but in Texas, a regular marriage license does not automatically change your name either. You still need to change it with Social Security and with DPS.

Why don’t you just call on Monday morning? You will probably have better luck that way.

Technically we’re common law married and we file taxes together and have a joint bank acct, etc. We’re going to get the standard marriage license and go through the motions that any other couple would go through. It just seems to make things more complcated to go the other route for the same ending, ya know? As far as I know, getting married won’t change anything, like taxes you’ve already filed.

I would go talk to the people at the licensing place.  The people here in FL explained a few things to us. They really are helpful.
