I am not exactly sure what board to post this to, so please let me know if you have a better idea for a board.
My FI is against getting a state marriage license. We have researched the pros and cons extensively but I am still having trouble accepting the idea of going against the ‘norm’ because I am not sure what to expect, how to go about it or what to do. What is everyone else’s opinion regarding a marriage license? Is anyone not getting one? How did you go about with your research and how did you move forward with not having one?
We will have a family bible in which we will sign, the pastors will sign as well as two witnesses. We will then be taking it to the courthouse to have it certified and a copy registered.
Any help or insight would be much appreciated!
