Marriage Requirements

Navigation:  Home > Family Law> Marriage Requirements


There are several requirements in order to marry. First, currently in all 50 states (though the laws may change in Massachusetts), the couple must consist of one man and one woman, who is 18 (unless parental consent is obtained), have the mental capacity to enter into a marriage contract, are sober, have a marriage license (obtained from the county clerk), and are not married to anyone else.

In addition, a few states require blood tests, and still other states have a short waiting period (1-3 days) before the couple can wed.
