We require that both parties sign the marriage or civil union certificate.
We will try to accomodate those that are unable to get to the office during
working hours by allowing them to come by my home in the evenings and sign
the certificate but we do insist that both sign.

Subject: Surprise Marriages

> This is my second request this year so I wanted some input from other
clerks if you've run into the same situation or would oblige.  I have
someone who wants to have a surprise wedding.  Our office policy has always
been that both parties come in to sign the license to determine both are of
age, both willing, etc.  She said he expects a May wedding but she wants to
surprise him at Christmas.  She's already booked the hall!  Vitals said it
can be done, but I am entitled to stick to my policy if I want.
> What if the guy says no?  I know that wouldn't be my problem, but I've
talked to other men when this happend last summer (including my boyfriend)
and they all said they would not like it.
> Please let me know if you've done it or you would do it.
> Thanks.
