What questions at the courthouse do I have to answer before I get married?


It may differ from state to state, but when I got married, I needed to have a valid ID. There are not any official questions to answer other than the paperwork for the marriage license which included questions like my date of birth, my social security number and my address.

It’s possible I also had to confirm that I wasn’t blood related to my partner, but that was only through the paperwork and not a blood test or any other documentation.

It’s very informal and requires surprisingly little in terms of information.
