COUPLE GET MARRIED BY ACCIDENT AT POST OFFICE
Written by Lola Narawa on March 16, 2023
While some couples invite hundreds to their wedding day, others opt to keep it quiet and simple celebrating their love with just each other. However, one couple has revealed how they accidentally got married by a postal worker when running errands.
Over the years I have heard of people accidentally doing things but never marriage . According to the couple he proposed to his long-term girlfriend just weeks before signing their marriage certificate – but never thought their big day would be so anticlimactic. Due to the nature of his work, they agreed to get married in a courthouse surrounded by their close friends and family – so in preparation for that, they went out to sign the necessary documents to make it official.
He said: “I got off work early today and after getting home my fiancée asked if we could go get some paperwork notarised for our courthouse wedding we planned to have in a month or two.
“We hopped in the car with a form we printed off the county website and drove to the closest UPS, the notary checked our IDs and had us sign and then she signed, notarised the form, and said congratulations.”
Thinking they were all set up for their wedding, the bride called up the courthouse later that day to double check what documents they’d need to bring with them on the big day.
However, she was shocked to learn she wouldn’t need to bring a thing – not even themselves – as they were already legally married.
