With so many freakin so called "specialists" in this

This answer was rated:

With so many freakin so called "specialists" in this state one would think I would not have to waste the time of the judicial branch...but all the little "ms. know it all's" are giving me conflicting information and Google search is not getting me to the
correct site. So here is the dumbest question for you: I also officiate wedding ceremonies...not many but enough that I had to break out a line of such...Do the two little love birds need to sign the Certificate of Marriage or simply the Marriage
License which I take down to the recorders office? Many examples of both all over so unable to get definitive if there even is one.. Thank you.
Thank you for your new question and for asking for me.
The Texas law states the marriage license needs to be signed and needs to be submitted with the officiant completing their certification of the marriage taking place on the license. It says nothing about a marriage certificate being submitted (although I understand some local clerks want the certificate attached even though the law says merely that the officiant must complete their part certifying the marriage ceremony occurred before the 31st day from issuance of the license.
