◦The cost of the license can be reduced to $22 saving you $60 on the purchase of your license, as well as waiving the 72 hours. To receive the discount you must attend a pre-marital class that meets state requirements and bring documentation with you showing proof of counseling. For more information on this program, we suggest you first contact the individual who is officiating your ceremony, your church, or a ministerial counseling service; local universities sometimes offer this type of counseling as well. At this time, we are unable to maintain a list of providers who are offering this program. For Marriage Skills Workshops in your area you may visit
