Marriage License Question

We live in Ewing and are getting married in Trenton (all of a stones throw from our house).  Do we go to Ewing to get the marriage license or do we go into Trenton (downtown - eek) to get the marriage license?  Every where I look it says to get the license where you live, but then other places state to get it where you are getting married.  So confusing.

Re: Marriage License Question

  • My understanding is that you apply for the license in the town that live and your pastor will file it in the town where the ceremony is being held.

    You would apply for your marriage license in Ewing since that's where you live. Once you're married, the license will be filed in Trenton and that's who will issue your marriage certificate. 



  • Agree with above - apply where you live. You will then pick it up from where you were married.

  • You only have to apply in the county you are getting married in if both of you live out of state. Otherwise you can apply in the county you live in.

    Go to the town you LIVE in.

    Or you'll wind up like me....who had to get remarried a month later from her actual wedding date.
