Would this have been a legal marriage

    I was watching a rerun of "Amen" tonight. It was the episode of the wedding. As the ceremony was getting under way the pastor fainted. The show ended with Rev Gregory ( the groom) preforming his own wedding.

    Would that have been legal in your State?

    I think in my state all that matters is the signature on the marriage license.

    No problem in Colorado.
    Colorado Revised Statutes 14-2-109
    A marriage may be solemnized by a judge of a court, by a court magistrate, by a retired judge of a court, by a public official whose powers include solemnization of marriages, by the parties to the marriage, or in accordance with any mode of solemnization recognized by any religious denomination or Indian nation or tribe.

    lol...wow...Amen...old show...

    uh, my uncle tried to do this once. It wasn't legal. Too bad his poor (non)wife found out two year too late. She had already deeded everything to him and he wasn't at all tied to her legally.

    That is not a legal marriage. Technical definitions vary state to state and should be checked with your local municipality...but I think that is stating the obvious. :)
