Maryland Legal Gay Weddings!!!!


Tuesday, November 6, 2012 was an historic day in the State of Maryland!  A majority of voters approved the Marriage Equality ballot legalizing marriage for all same-sex couples.  Maryland became the first state south of the Mason-Dixon line to approve same-sex marriage, and joins a select group of states who perform same-sex weddings.  Here are the details about getting married in Maryland:
  •  
    • You DO NOT have to be a legal resident of Maryland to get married here.
    • You must apply for the marriage license in the county in which you will have the wedding ceremony.
    • Only one spouse must apply in person.  However, if you live outside the state of Maryland, you can submit a Non-Resident Affidavit by mail to request your marriage license.
    • You must provide the following information for both spouses: name, address, age, social security number, place of birth and marital status.
    • Although you will receive the marriage license of the day that you apply for it, it will not be valid for 48 hrs.  Therefore you must apply at least 3 days before you plan to be wed to make sure that the license is in effect.
    • The marriage licenses are valid for 6 months after being issued.  If you do not use the license within those 6 months, it will expire and you will need to apply for a new license.
    • Any applicant who has been divorced or widowed must provide the exact date and name of the County and State in which the divorce or death occurred.  You do not need to provide a divorce decree or death certificate.
