    He, as in your Fiance?  or his Family?  I mean, honestly–your money will be his after you get married and vice versa.

    It’s only a hundrad dollars you can pretty much split it lol. Why are you getting married at the courthouse first though?

    I voted for “him” but I meant the two of you. If he’s got the $$ in his checking account, then him! if your parents are paying, I wouldn’t ask them. If you’re paying for the wedding and not him, then I would ask him to pick up the tab on this one.

    We’re doing a courthouse ceremony too and will just do a nice lunch afterward.

    I would consider this the cost of the officiant, and thus if your family is paying for the wedding it should be included.

    If you are talking old school, the groom would pay for the officient.  In this case, it would be the courthouse costs.  But as someone else said, it would be both of you because your money will be his and vise-versa.

    I never knew something like this (getting legally married for only $100) was a big deal. Weddings are so expensive already, you would think no one would really care about who pays for the $100 fee. 

    Anyhoos, I’m with the majority, his money is your money and your money is his money. It doesn’t matter because in the end you BOTH are still paying for it.
