So my DH and I have been talking about this idea for a while of making a goal to be married in all 50 states and possibly some

Wow... that's a goal! lol Not to mention a pricey goal.

I think my goal would be to make love in every state. Hmm... might just make that a goal. ;)

It seems like you could accomplish the same goal by renewing your vows and saving yourself the cost of a licensing fee in each state.

Also, although you are obviously not a polygamist, it might raise questions if it were discovered that you had multiple marriage licenses.

I don't know, I've been looking into it, and I can't seem to find any reason we can't get married in every state.

I agree with the other ladies that this is an interesting idea! Although DH and I travel a fair amount, we've only been to 9 states *together*.

I think you'll be doing a vow renewal rather than a true marriage because the foundation of marriage licenses is that they are valid in all 50 states. (Although that has come into question lately with some states trying to limit same-sex marriage but I still don't think that has effected opposite-sex marriage guidelines)

I don't know about the logistics of a minister performing a marriage where they are a participant but since you'd be doing a vow renewal, I don't see anything wrong with it.

It would be cool if you would share this journey with us, whether here on the board or by linking to a blog or something!
