I’m trying to figure out if Montana is just ass-backward, or If other states also require this testing.
Please let us know yes/no, and your location.
In Montana, it looks like I can waive the test, but it has some weird medical language about being approved by a doctor. I’ve no plans for children, and honestly, I think this is a relic of the past. So many babies are born outside of marriage these days, what’s the point?

I was not married in the US, but in BC Canada no this is not required. And seems very weird lol.

We got married in Colorado, nothing medical was involved in getting our marriage license.

Florida. No testing required.
ETA: Do you have to actually get a test? Maybe proving you had the vaccine as a child is enough (if you did, of course)?

We didn’t have to in OK but in recent decades people were required to get a blood test before they got married there. I’m not sure when that law changed.

Indiana used to require this. No longer does. It is a relic of the past it seems.

California did not. Only required our IDs and parents info on the marriage application.

No medical questions or testing at all for getting married in MA.

It looks like only Montana and DC require this. I’m curious what they do if you “fail”? Do they not let you get married? And why does only the female need to be tested? This seems so strange to me.
