A marriage license is not the same thing as a marriage certificate. A marriage license says you are legally able to marry but it does not guarantee that you are married. A marriage certificate is the certificate that shows that the marriage was solemnized. You also probably received a small sheet of paper entitled Vital Statistics. That small paper, usually green in color, is your marriage certificate with all of your data.
