The memo sent with the forms says it is for weddings that will occur on or
after September 1st.  Obviously some of these people will be coming in prior
to September 1st.  So technically they can use it early.  Hopefully we won't
have to deal with this situation but it is possible.

  I think you are wrong about issuing a license to a same sex couple. i
believe you need to wait until 9-1-09.

    There are a lot of "what-ifs" during this transition.  What if two women
come in today to apply for a Civil Marriage to be performed on September 15
and then they decide to do it on August 29th instead?  If they come in
today, I am going to give it to them and technically it is valid today.
Should I be typing the dates valid only September 1 through whenever 60 days
from actual date of issue is?

    Also, the same is said for people who came in last week prior to having
the new forms.  I issued marriage licenses for September last week and am
not going to track down these people and their out-of-state minister after
the fact to do a whole new license form.

    Hopefully the Department of Health is taking this all into consideration
and will be flexible with these scenarios.

      Hi Lyndon Town Clerk.  Did you ever get an answer to your question of
June 18 to Rich McCoy regarding the new license?    Is the new license  for
"civil marriage" (that we just received) going to replace the civil union
AND the traditional marriage license?  One form fits all?  Thanks,  Nancy
