When you sign the marriage license...

Recommended Posts

ok...let me start by saying, I am probably over thinking this...but...

 

When you sign your marriage lisence, do you sign it with your name and "maiden name" or a new signature with you "new last name", since you are technically now man and wife....

 

(This is assuming your are going to change your name after the marriage)

 

if I don't ask now, I can see myself asking when I am signing...

I'm pretty sure they just tell you to sign your maiden name because it has nothing to do with changing your name-- the guy was very helpful in the moment, he just said, sign as it says on your passport (and of course my passport was my maiden name). I don't think the marriage licence has anythign to do with changing your name, that's something you would do later, which means you just have to sign with your legal name at the time.

I'm pretty sure mine was a like any other legal document where my name was printed with a line above to sign - so whatever is printed is what you'll sign.  Don't worry - your officiant will walk you through it.

This is something I hadn't even thought about before!

At my friends wedding this past weekend (I was MOH and therefore had to sign) she signed her Maiden name.  She wasn't sure either but in rehearsal she asked the priest who informed her to use her maiden name.

 

I think this is pretty standard!

lol i was unsure about this too, so i actually asked my W/C lol you sign using your maiden name....due to the fact that it is a legal document so what ever is on your birth cert. is what you wright on the marriage cert.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
