About It's now in the Public Record...

Previous Entry It's now in the Public Record... Jun. 30th, 2004 @ 01:24 pm Next Entry
Since neither reveilles nor I have syphilis, we went to the Amherst Town Hall today to file our Intention of Marriage. It's now a matter of public record that we want to get married.

We met with our organist on Sunday to pick out our music. We are using The Prince of Denmark's March (Trumpet Voluntary) by Jeremiah Clarke as the processional and a wedding march written by our organist as the recessional. We considered using the Wedding March from Wagner's Lohengrin, but after looking at a synopsis, we decided against it. Who wants to march down the aisle to music from a marriage that is destroyed because of a lack of trust and never gets consummated?

Only 45 more days to go. :)

Right now, reveilles and I are one signature away from being married. As soon as the minister signs the license and returns it to the Amherst Town Clerk, we will be married in the eyes of the law.

Filling an Intention of Marriage is just Massachusetts' funny way of saying that you are applying for a marriage license.

okay, i'm processing here...
the minister signs the license at the wedding right? i mean at the ceremony? she and you don't have to sign something at the wedding?

or does he sign it before and you're legally married then and just waiting for the religious ceremony?

The only thing that is needed for Rachel and I to be legally married is the minister's signature on the license. At this point, neither reveilles nor I need to sign anything else. Legally, the minister cannot sign the license until after the ceremony takes place.

We could go to any minister or Justice of the Peace and he or she could perform the ceremony and sign the license and we would be legally married.
