    Get a Free Marriage License

    The Texas State Legislature passed a law that gives couples an opportunity to acquire a marriage license for free.

    Anyone who applies for a marriage license is encouraged to take an eight-hour premarital education course. For those who agree to take the course, you receive $60 off the marriage license fee (for Bexar County residents, $81 in cash—checks not accepted). To receive the discount, couples must bring in the "Twogether in Texas" certificate (www.twogetherintexas.com). Prices may vary across counties.

    The education course covers conflict management, communication skills, and the key components of a successful marriage.

    The course can be given by any of the following:

    · Marriage educators
    · A member of the clergy

    · Licensed mental health professionals
    · Faith-based organizations
    · Community-based organizations
    (Cost of the course will vary.)

    When you have completed the course, make certain you receive a signed and dated completion certificate that includes:
    · The name of the course
    · The name of the course provider
    · The completion date

    Remember you must take the course prior to applying for your marriage license. You should also keep in mind that a marriage license is good for 30 days from the time of application.
