Obtaining Your Texas Marriage License


Today is the day that we obtain our marriage license.  It is so exciting for me.  I have been divorced for almost 14 years having gotten married the first time back in 1998 and separating from that marriage in 2002.  It has been a long, hard road to get here and find the love of my life.  

In Grayson County, Texas where we live it is $67 to get a marriage license.  We have to be sure to take our Government-issued picture ID.  There are no witnesses required and no blood tests.  You  have to wait a minimum of 72 hours before you can have a marriage ceremony and the license is valid for 90 days.  We will be married on 07/23 so we definitely will fall within this timeline.   If you are located in this county you can access information as well as premarital education handbooks and AIDS/HIV fact sheets via this link http://www.co.grayson.tx.us/default.aspx?name=cclk.marriage

Getting married is an exciting time for everyone, but can also prove stressful if you do not make sure you have all of your needed information ahead of time.  Be sure to research what you need for all aspects including your license, officiant, etc.  Overall, have fun and congratulations!
