Question: How do I get married?
The general procedure for getting married can be found at A.R.S.§ 25-121, and all the sections that fall immediately afterwards. You must first obtain a license from the Clerk of the Superior Court in your county. That specific procedure is described in subsection B of the same law cited above. The license is good for one year. Most judges and clergymen can perform the marriage ceremony itself. When selecting a clergyman, you must ensure that the person you have selected is someone "who by the customs, rules and regulations of a religious society or sect [is] authorized or permitted to solemnize marriages or to officiate at marriage ceremonies." Don't just pull somebody off the street who calls himself a minister! Good luck, and congratulations!
