Detailed marriage procedure

Action by registering officers

Special care should be exercised in the following cases:

  1. where neither person is known to the registering officer;
  2. where neither person is a member;
  3. where either person has had a previous marriage or civil partnership dissolved;
  4. where either person has been in a long-term relationship with another person, especially where there are children.

If the registering officer does not feel able to allow arrangements to proceed without further consideration, a meeting for clearness may be helpful or the matter should be referred to the area meeting (16.29 & 16.3716.39).
