We are recognized by the state of Massachusetts...

A marriage licence (spelled license in American English) is a document issued, either by a church or state authority, authorizing a couple to marry. The procedure for obtaining a licence varies between countries and has changed over time. Marriage licences began to be issued in the Middle Ages, to permit a marriage which would otherwise be illegal (for instance, if the necessary period of notice for the marriage had not been given).

This morning Jarrett and I went to fill out paperwork for our marriage license aka our intent to marry! On Thursday, it will be official... until the ceremony. I was expecting something eventful, this is a big deal! But nope, we filled out our information...she checked our id's...we signed the paperwork and paid $15. (BTW, it's $30 in Cambridge and $50 in Boston!!!!) That was it. Then we were on our way...the day goes on!
