BILL NUMBER:S490 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the domestic relations law, in relation to allowing marriages within twenty-four hours of receiving a marriage license PURPOSE: This bill will permit any military personnel scheduled for deployment in less than thirty days to get married within twenty-four hours of receiving their marriage license. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends section 13-b of the domestic relations law in relation to the time within which a marriage can be solemnized. This legislation will allow military personnel deploying in less than thirty days to waive the twenty-four hour waiting period upon receiving a marriage license. JUSTIFICATION: The twenty-four hour waiting period that couples have to wait before they can get married does not seem like a long time. For men and women in the military this waiting period can be a hindrance if they get deployed on short notice. This is important today with our War in Iraq because many men and women are being sent overseas, and with that there has been an increase in the number of marriage licenses
