What Does It Take To Solemnize A Marriage?
The concept of solemnization of the marriage literally refers to the ceremony involved. It is not enough to simply marry within the geographical limits of a state; there must be some ceremony involved. Generally speaking there is no universal form required for solemnization of the marriage, unless set by statute, but the parties shall declare, in the presence of the person solemnizing the marriage and necessary witnesses that they take each other as husband and wife.
