    your experience sounds like what we do in Ohio. However, i have gone through the process so many times that when my Fiance came in, it took probably 2 minutes to do. I work in Marriage Licensing so I do multiple licenses a day. A few weeks ago I did almost 30 of them in one day.

    It does feel a lot better to have it out of the way. I know if nothing else goes right that day, I can still legally get married.

    Got mine! Here they last for 3 months but cost NZ$122!!! I couldn’t believe it. Then you have to pay another $30 after the wedding if you want a copy of the actual certificate which you need if you’re changing your name anywhere. Le sigh!

    Went to the county clerk at lunch today.. almost cried when they told me to address an envelope to ‘Mr and Mrs’ for the State of Florida to mail the Marriage Certificate in after the wedding. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Moment.

    Florida costed $94 without a marriage course. It took about an hour between waiting in line, reading this random last minute reading material, and waiting in line again.

    The random reading material.. i kid you not… included “No person has a right to physically hit, push, shove, shake, or abuse another person, even if that person is his or her spouse.” Good to know I’m not *his* property for shaking. Thanks Florida! Domestic abuse should never be made light of, but I thought the last minute reading material was odd. It also went through property law discussions, divorce, child support, etc. It was like a last minute.. “are you sure you want to do this?” document.

    Dang Chicago!  Ours was $60!  And what got me was that it’s a darn civil union license and costs the same as a marriage license!  We owe $15 for one copy and $4 for every copy after that!  Can you believe it?!  I was like, if you’re going to charge us as much as a heterosexual couple, at least give us the same rights!  LOL!
