Uh oh.

The weirdness of the Cook County marriage license.

Directly from the site:

Applying For A Marriage License

Before getting married in Chicago or suburban Cook County, couples must obtain a marriage license from the Cook County Clerk’s office.

We can do that!  My notes in italics.

Eligibility

Under Illinois law, only eligible persons can marry. Both the bride and groom must:

  • be 18 years of age or older Check.
  • be of opposite sex Check.
  • not be blood relatives I am still a little worried about this, no biggie.
But don’t worry, there are exceptions!

Exceptions

  • Under state law, first cousins older than 50 years of age may marry. Goody!
  • Under state law, applicants who are 16 and 17 years old may obtain a marriage license with parental consent.  Sick.
    The End.
