TIP: Hang Onto Your Wedding License!

Published January 19, 2020 by Nan Mykel

Even if you’ve been married and divorced oodles of times and have felt like trashing the marriage license,  don’t do it unless you’ve had a legal name change or have a saved copy of all your marriage licenses.  Otherwise they won’t let you board a plane even to another place in the USA now. I’ll add more in my next post so I can quote from the Ohio BMV regulations and I’ll try and see if it  just pertains to my state or them all,  and what the requirements–state or federal–for voting is. At first blush women are facing harsher restrictions than men re flying.   All I had was a wedding notice in the paper, an outdated visa, a photo id from a former government job, A local library photo ID,  many newspaper column gravatars  from 11th grade through the UF, plus a photo ID on the back of my book plus two copies of my birth certificate.  I hope to add more the next post or two. Readers are invited to share information in their comments.

  • Say WHAT??? My impression was that a photo ID such as passport or driver’s license was all you needed to board a plane whether domestic or international. I shall try to catch your next post for additional info. I vowed on 11 September 2001 that I would never fly again, and I haven’t, but that’s not to say the occasion might not come about that I would, for one reason or another, have to take a plane somewhere. I’d be out of luck if I needed a marriage license … though I do have the death certificate of the late ex. And … we live in the same state … I never knew!

    • I still need to do that timely research and hope to have the time and energy after my surgery in Atlanta Feb. 10. At the present time as I understand it everything’s okay until you need your drivers license renewed. After that time as I understand it you will need to provide proof of full legal name via birth certificate (if unchanged from birth), unexpired and valid U.S. Passport or U.S. passport card, and two proofs of many proving your current address in the state. (I left out social security number requirement as too simple). More on today;s posting.
