Marriage licenses are obtained from the county court clerks office. A license obtained in any Oklahoma County will be valid for marriage in all Oklahoma Counties. An example would be if Jane and John live in Oklahoma County but wish to be married at a special location in Tulsa County. This couple could obtain their marriage license in their home county and it would be valid for their ceremony in Tulsa County or any other county in Oklahoma. There would be no need to visit Tulsa County in advance of their wedding day. The cost for a marriage license in Oklahoma is $50.00. You may save $45 on your marriage license if you take 4 hours of pre-marital counseling, bringing the cost of your Oklahoma Marriage License to $5.00.  (The premarital counseling program must be conducted be in accordance with Oklahoma Statute 43 O.S. 5.1.) There is no residency restriction to obtain a marriage license in Oklahoma. You are not required to be a resident of Oklahoma to obtain a marriage license however, you will be required to provide identification with proof of age. Examples of acceptable identification would be Drivers License, State ID, Military ID or birth certificate. Minors under 16 are not allowed to be married in Oklahoma (Exception: Court Order). Minors who are 16-17 years old may be married in Oklahoma and may obtain a marriage license with parental consent and a birth certificate is required. For these individuals there is a mandatory 72 hour waiting period before marriage. Adults age 18 and above would not require a waiting period to be married.

Your Oklahoma Marriage license will require the signature of two witnesses, the bride, the groom and the minister or officiant who performs your wedding ceremony. The bride should sign the marriage license with her name as she will be known going forward.
