My guess is people in LDR probably ask this and want to know if they can get married without actually both being in the same place

I can’t understand how (outside of extreme situations) that would ever come up.  So odd!

That is bizarre that that ever is asked let alone a frequently asked question.  Hmm

Not really – I’d put money on that being a top question from G/L couples who live in States/Provinces that don’t have equal marriage rights….

Umm yeah I asked.

Well I wanted to attend my actual marriage ceremony, but I may have asked if I could get my marriage license online or by phone. I still don’t get why I had to go down to the courthouse (and take off work and pay for a day’s worth of parking) for that lousy piece of paper.

Act as a proxy? Strange!

@PinkMagnolia:  Yeah, I’m not sure why both people have to be there.  Fiance took the day off yesterday (I’m off all week) specifically to go and get the license.  We went to a small town, because it’s way cheaper.  Unfortunately, that means that while we were able to apply yesterday, we didn’t get the license.  I get to go and pick it up another day, on my own.  Why exactly did Fiance have to be there to sign a piece of paper he could have signed at home?

That is pretty weird!

(but for the record, in Michigan only ONE of us had to be there to get the marriage license! yay! They realize apparently that getting the license isn’t like actually getting married… duh.)

Actually in Islam one can be married with a proxy standing in for them…. and considering the number of new arrivals to Ontario from other countries, I’m not surprised that’s a FAQ.
