Resolved Question:

Hi hope you can help i was married on the beach at Clearwater
on 11/25/2006 but did not get my marriage license until 11/27/2006 the
marriage certificate had its date altered to accommodate this by the
person who married us, my marriage has since broken down, My UK
solicitor has advised me that my marriage may not be legal & to contact
you to ask this.

Is it true to say that if you get married without a license is the marriage not legally binding


Thanks
