    Article - Marriage License Info for Minnesota
    A valid marriage license issued by a Minnesota county clerk is required for all
    religious and non-religious marriages in Minnesota.
    The license must be applied for in person by at least one of the contracting
    parties.  If one or both parties are present, they must provide proof of
    identity (In most cases you will be required to show primary and secondary
    "Proof of Identity". Primary documents considered acceptable as "proof of
    identity" include: Prior drivers license or Identification Card, certified copy
    of birth certificate, original Naturalization Certificate or Alien
    Identification card. Secondary documents include Social Security card,
    certified copy of a marriage record, a certified court order or another primary
    document.  Please call the State of Minnesota at 651-296-6911 if you have
    questions regarding acceptable proof of identity. If the applicant's current
    name differs from that shown on the primary document presented, a certified
    copy of the name change - court order or marriage certificate, for example -
    must also be presented.) 
    If one of the parties is not present, their signature must be notarized.  The
    license may be picked up after a five-day statutory waiting period and is valid
    for six months from issue date. No refunds are issued on unused licenses at any
    time. Social Security Number for both parties is required.
    If either or both applicant(s) has/have been married previously, information
    regarding termination of the most recent marriage is required at time of
    application. If the most recent previous marriage was terminated by death, the
    exact date, as well as the state and county in which the death occurred, must
    be provided. If termination was by divorce or court annulment, the exact date,
    county, state, and type of court are required. If termination by divorce or
    legal annulment occurred within 30 days of the date of application, a certified
    copy of the decree must be presented for viewing.
    A marriage license costs $80.00 without pre-marital counseling, $20.00 with
    pre-marital counseling consisting of least 12 hours of premarital education
    that included the use of a premarital inventory and the teaching of
    communication and conflict management skills be given by a licensed or ordained
    minister, a person authorized to solemnize marriages under Minnesota Statutes,
    Section 517.18, or a person licensed to practice marriage and family therapy
    under Minnesota Statutes, Section 148B.33. A pre-marital form must be submitted
    at the time of application. The 12 hours of counselling
