Hi all, I wasn’t sure what board to post this on, but Legal seemed like a good place to start…
I got the copies of our marriage license in the mail yesterday, and the date on the license is 5/23/10, but we actually got married on the 22nd. Is that typical that it would be dated the day after the wedding, or did someone make a mistake? Is my marriage license valid?
Thanks for your help!

PS we were married in Virginia if that makes a difference.

My license has our wedding date. I think they made a mistake? I would call and tell them you have the wrong date. Shouldn’t be hard to fix! 🙂

Yeah it looks like our priest wrote the wrong date 🙁 The circuit court clerk told me that it’s still legal and valid and I can contact the priest to change it if I want to… but I kind of don’t feel like going through the trouble. Although if I have to include my marriage date on my name change stuff, then I’d have to put down the 23rd so it matches… that’s lame.

Maybe you got our license instead?
I just noticed (yesterday) that our priest put the wrong date on our marriage license as well! He put the 22nd and we actually got married on the 21st.. I’m curious what the process is.. and since it was HIS mistake do we have to pay? We were married in Texas for what it’s worth.. let me know if you find anything out..

yes it should still be vaild. my husband i became legally married last april – and long story short, my family is friends with a LOT of ministers (all from the same church, salvation army). Well – one minister who’s been close to my mom and dad for the past 15 years actually performed our ceremony last year and so she is the one on our actual license (we’re having my godfather/another salvation army minister do our wedding)…well when i went to change my name last month, I noticed they COMPLETELY misspelled her last name. I mean it’s not even anywhere CLOSE to her name. 🙁
my mom made me promise never to tell her…but I went to the county clerk and they said it’s “no big deal” and “still valid”…
so yeah. that sucks – but it’s only on THEIR record – whereas at least our actual certificate we signed and all that it’s right…
you should be good!
