We Are Not First Cousins

27 Sep

But if we were, we could get married in NJ.  Who knew??

DB and I took a mini-break from atoning yesterday to head down to Newark City Hall to get our marriage license.  We are New York residents but NY & NJ laws state that you must get the license in the municipality that you are getting married.  So off the Newark we went.

City Hall – It’s actually a really cool old building. Just like The Mezz!

DB and I filled out a few forms, paid $28 and took an oath.  Then we needed our witness to step in.  I brought my mom as back-up, but as we were walking into the building. I tweeted at social-media savvy Newark Mayor Cory Booker:

Within the  minute, Mayor Booker tweeted me back.  My heart stopped, hoping he was on his way downstairs, but alas:

I then proceeded to invite him to the wedding via Twitter.  I’ll let you know if he shows up!

Don’t worry, my mom was an excellent witness.  A few more signatures and questions and we were good to go.  We have to pick it up the week of the wedding.

It’s getting really close now…  xoxo db2be
