I figured I'd better take a peek into what needs to happen marriage license wise, because it would be just our luck to accidentally not legalize our marriage.
The City of St. Louis provided this helpful information:
$48 cash is required at the time of application
We need to bring a current ID and proof of social security numbers
$12 is needed for the certified copy which I need to change my name
After we apply, we have 30 days to have the ceremony done, and we can pick it up 3 days after the application is made.
How needlessly complicated is that? I'm going to have to be in St Louis with Ryan on a week day when neither one of us is working and pay an *sston of money. Yes, $60 is an *sston of money, especially for paper. And the scheduling is guaranteed to be a nightmare.
I would continue to complain, but I am humbled by the fact that we have the right to walk in there and obtain a marriage license at all. So I'll stop now and soak that in.
What did you have to do to get your marriage license?
