Do I Need To Take A Blood Test In Order To Get Married?
This depends on the state in which the wedding is taking place, because the rules vary from state to state. Numerous states ended premarital blood tests and/or physical exams, but some still do require tests for illnesses such as rubella, tuberculosis, and venereal disease. In addition, since the boost in HIV and AIDS, many states call for marrying parties to be offered an HIV test and/or information on accessibility of AIDS tests. Currently no states mandate a premarital HIV/AIDS test.
