Oh yes.

We got our marriage license yesterday afternoon!!!

We drove over to Oregon City to get a Clackamas County license, even though you can get one in any county and use it in a different county. But our officiant is going to take it back to the Clackamas Cty. office so we figured we might as well eliminate the guesswork as to whether they'd accept a Washington County license, etc.

We'd already gotten the form mailed to us, which was a big help - we got in and out in just a few minutes. A very short, round lady helped us. She entered us into the computer, and made some cracks about how we're paying $60 so we can't turn back now, and she gave us our "real" license and a commemmerative license, which we need to get someone with nice handwriting (or calligraphy skills even) to fill out for us. When I was little, I used to imagine going to get the marriage license with my fiance, and I wanted him to be right-handed so we could sign the license at the same time and still hold hands. So when we were up there, even though we didn't have to sign anything (we'd already done so when we filled out the application), I grabbed his hand and was very happy. :D

So in 2 days (I think), we can legally be married!
