License: Obtained

Having previously downloaded and filled out the form, we went to the Alexandria Circuit Court Clerk’s office this morning and got our marriage license. :-)

It was surprisingly (disturbingly?) simple: we gave the clerk the form, she typed up a copy which we both had to sign, we had to swear that we had filled it out honestly, and then we gave her $30 and that was it. We didn’t have to provide any identification or any other documents or anything. The whole process took less than ten minutes, and we spent the majority of the time waiting while she typed.

And the “swearing” just consisted of saying “yes” with our right hands raised. (I guess swearing on a Bible has gone out of fashion.) I’m sure people find it much more difficult to lie when they have to concentrate on keeping their right arm elevated… especially those sinister lefties.
