So we were watching Bams Unholy Union last night and they went down to city hall to get their marriage license. My question is, once you have that from city hall does that mean you are married? Is the wedding just a big show for everyone?

No your not married. It has to be signed by the person who preforms the ceremony(JP, minister, ect. ) and witnesses and both of you. Then if I'm not mistaken it has to be filed.

You still need a ceremony, be it from a priest, reverend, minister, justice of the peace, etc...

That's correct. This is what happened to my neighbor's son - his minister never filed the papers so he was actually never legally married. Really sucked for him when his wife kicked him out. :-\

My friend ran into Bam Saturday night, he and his wife were at a bar in New Hope, PA. She got a few pictures with him on her camera phone.

Is there no way of doing a "delayed registration"? I used to work for the Ontario office that registeres marriages once they are filed and it isn't unusual for the officiant to forget, misplace or the papers get "lost in the mail" WE have ahad a few where the officiant wasn't legally able to preform the ceremony and took off after, but with sufficient proof the marriage can be registered. In a situation like this they would have to do this and then file for divorce or he may technically still be married when he goes to marry another person.

I don't know too terribly much about the whole situation, but I know they only discovered it after she kicked him out. So, she's not going to be interested in correcting the situation.

The funny thing is when I went to get my marriage license my husband did not even have to be present. I went by myself and just had to raise my right hand and swear that I was telling the truth. I thought is was weird.........
