Default Re: Is marriage at sea legal?

The good news is that here in Florida if you go through some sort of premarital preparation you get a discount on your marriage license. The fee for a marriage license is $88.50, but with the preparation you get at $32.50 discount, so it would only end up costing you $56.

Mark and I did marriage preparation through our church so we get the discount (yay!) Of course, the preparation course cost us $50 so I guess we're not getting the better deal, but it was a great course and really brought up a lot of interesting things to think and talk about.

We have a date three weeks from today to go pick up the license. Technically, we could get it anytime now, since it has to be used within 60 days of picking it up, and the wedding is definitely within that time period. (Yikes!) But the clerk's office is open from 8 - 4:30 Monday through Friday, and Nov. 7 is the only Friday until the wedding that I am off work with nothing scheduled.
