I believe in love and marriage.
I have been married for more than forty years to my best friend and husband; We have a wonderful family. We have two children who have gone on to have long lasting relationships and have brought us our three jewels, our grandchildren.
In 2004, when it looked like Massachusetts was going to be the first state to legalize gay marriage, I decide to become a Justice of the Peace. I wanted to be there and ready for anyone who wanted to make that life commitment to one another. I truly believe that loving someone and being loved by them is one of the greatest gifts in life.
I value what my marriage has meant to my life and look forward to being a part of your promises to one another.
The only requirement for a marriage ceremony is a valid Massachusetts marriage license.
Together you must go to any city or town clerk in Massachusetts to file your inentions to marry. You must show the clerk a valid form of identification. Expect to pay a fee of twenty to fifty dollars to the City Clerk. You must wait three days to PICK UP your marriage license. You do not have to go to the city or town in which you reside and you do not have to prove residency.
Your officiant must complete the license and return it to the city or town where it was issued, That is the only place where your license will be registered.
You can go back to the clerk about ten days after the ceremony to obtain certified copies to use.
Your licnese is valid for SIXTY DAYS from the date of filing.
