Atlantic City, Vegas of the East? New law could make it easier to get hitched in A.C.
What bride wouldn’t want to tie the knot in a dream wedding in the East Coast’s most charming spot — Atlantic City?
New Jersey, home of hopeless romantic Governor Chris Christie, is quite close to a new law that would make it easier to get married in the A.C. — just add alcohol!
It would also expedite the divorce process — just add sobriety!
The bill, which has been passed by both houses of the New Jersey legislature, would nix a 72-hour waiting period for obtaining marriage or civil union licenses, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Nothing like instant gratification when making a horrible decision.
The new bill also proposes the fee for obtaining a marriage or civil union license be increased from $28 to $60 — a steep jump, but given that you’ve probably already gambled away most of your savings while blacked-out drunk by the time you decide to get married in Atlantic City anyway, we’re guessing the extra $32 isn’t likely to be the one thing that makes you stop and realize that it’s the worst idea ever.
Long live love!
