Newly-elected State Representative Rick Staples passed his first bill in the Civil Justice Committee recently. Staples was seeking to address a flaw in the law, which prevents folks from being married if not residing in the same state. You might wonder how exactly is that a flaw? Well, it certainly can be if one is in the military. The Staples bill allows a person in the American armed forces “to apply for a marriage license by submitting a notarized statement to the county clerk and designate a proxy to appear at the marriage ceremony.”
I wonder if a proxy will be able to appear for those getting divorces?
