When applying for a marriage license in Georgia, do they do a criminal background check?

No. Your future bride will never know about your criminal history unless you tell her. But I would strongly suggest you clear the air on this point before you marry since it could expose you to great financial and emotional harm later.


Very sound advice! Carying around the burden of a criminal record is hard enough without the additional load of deceitfulness. I the love is strong enough it can handle it,
