I drove and spent 1 1/2 today getting my marriage license.
I drove down to League City county clerk office (Galveston county). I went inside, asked for a certified copy of my marriage license.
She asked for year of marriage and husbands name.
I gave her the information, she asked no other questions. I didn't have a problem assuming that Dave was the only Harold Thompson to get married in Galveston County in 1997!
So she notarized it, I paid and left!
SO EXCITED THAT IT WAS THAT EASY.
My friend Julie said it best---- that should have been my first clue!
Anyway, got to Amy's and got it out to show my mom the coveted marriage certificate and IT WASN'T mine!
It for Harold Loyd Thompson and some other woman in 1996!!!
So I called.
I was told to come back in or they could mail it to me.
A little while later the gentleman called me back and asked for more information so he could have mine printed and ready to go when I got there.
I gave him all my info. He couldn't find the record.
I am pretty sure I got married!
So FINALLY he said you were married in Galveston county but this record shows that you got your license from Harris County. SO I went all that way for nothing! Paid for NOTHING--- well someone else's marriage license! Gas, TIME, stress!
SO I shall try again tomorrow--- in Harris County.
The saga continues!
