With our wedding coming up quickly, I wanted to share our trip to the courthouse to get our marriage license! It was another monumental check off of our wedding to-do list. Of course, like many things at the courthouse, we had to wait in line for a while, and then in a waiting room. While in the waiting room, there were girls wearing smiles and casual white dresses while their men wore their best pants and maybe even a tie. If love was made in a factory, this would be it. Even in the mundane frustration of waiting in line and waiting for your turn to be called, there was still excitement and smiles.
We waited, and finally when it was our turn and we were called, the clerk didn't rush us, she took the time to answer any question we had, or to find someone that knew the answer if she didn't. All that's left is to have our officiant notarize it and date it on our wedding day. Then we send it back and it's official! Easy enough. I wish the same could be said for changing my name - but that's a different monster to tackle on a different day.
