In case you’re having a hard time getting into things after the long weekend, here’s a list from MSN on 10 Obscure Marriage Laws. My three favorites:
- In Montana you can get married without either the bride or the groom actually being present at the ceremony. Just send proxies to stand in your place, and you’re good to go. I wonder if the proxies get to go on the honeymoon too?
- In Kentucky, it’s illegal to marry the same man four times. Three times is perfectly fine. But, four times? That’s wrong.
- In Truro, Mississippi, before a guy gets married he must “prove himself manly” by hunting and killing either six blackbirds or three crows. Apparently, the ability to kill things is a sure sign that you’re going to have a successful marriage.
