A marriage certificate is a vital record which documents the legal union of a couple in accordance with the laws of a particular country or jurisdiction. The marriage certificate is issued after a formal compact which is presided over by an individual who is authorized by a country or jurisdiction to officiate said compact. Depending on laws of a particular jurisdiction, witnesses may be required for the marriage to be legal. Before marriage, couples may be required to apply with a government office for a marriage license. This procedure enables jurisdictions to research the legality of the persons seeking to be married. To discourage “sham” marriages use to gain legal residence or citizenship in some countries, the marriage licensing is a serious national security government task.
