Why is a Marriage License Important?

Published April 20, 2022

As June approaches, so does wedding season, but why is a marriage license important? The answer may seem unromantic, but it’s a necessary tool for the government. When you get married through your state or local authority, they will provide protection and make sure that any children created from this marriage are legitimate heirs to both parties involved in its creation – giving them legal rights. These rights include medical information about their parents’ health history, inheritance opportunities, and eligibility of benefits.


The marriage license is a great way to keep track of your relationship without any romantic undertones. However, the choice for what kind or event makes up this legal contract falls solely with you! Once you decide if you are going to have your name changed or not, Legal Resources members can call their plan law firm to get more information on an uncontested name change. Relax, you’re covered.
