Looking to see if anyone can advise on what might happen if a marriage cert wasn’t submitted to gain a license? Would that mean that a couple would not be married or are they still married without the license? The marriage will be taking place in a church and we are wondering if it was a case that if we didn’t register the marriage and gain a license, would the priest be notified of this and asked to follow up or will it be our own business?
We are in a sticky situation as we have learned that one of us has bad credit so we will not be granted a mortgage as a married couple but one of us could if we weren’t married. Our wedding is coming up in a few months. Would we be breaking the law if we were married in the church and then didn’t officially register?
Any information on this would be much appreciated!
