My fiance and I are marrying in July. There are things we know are natural and don't need approval from government. How do we marry and get control over each other's affairs? We live in Grovetown, GA but will be marrying in Helen, GA
You are a few years too late. Marriage is now defined and regulated by the state government. After January 1, 1997, no one can be married without a valid marriage license, and without a marriage ceremony. Common law marriage has been outlawed in Georgia.
