    The state of Texas has a little known law governing “informal marriage”. For a marriage to be legal, we must publicly declare that we consider each other as spouses and this fact be known to other residents of the state of Texas. We got our certificate this afternoon and have now fulfilled the requirements as there’s bound to be a Texas resident or two amongst our joint readership. Feel free to witness our marriage here.

    What a wonderful ceremony! I am honored, as a long time resident of the state of Texas, to bear witness to this ceremony. I wish the best of luck to the happy couple. A true meeting of people in love is a great gift to those closest to the partners. A true meeting of intelligent minds, however, is a great gift to all those who learn and profit by that union.

    All the best,

    Are you officially married!? That was the ceremony? I was a wedding planner back the 90s. I wish I could have made you some wedding accessories, a cake topper or rose petal topiary. If it’s not too late I still will.
