5 Reasons Why People Should Consider Having A Court Wedding

If you are looking for an alternative way to get married, why not try a court marriage? It has many benefits and is so easy to carry out.

Here Are 5 Reasons Why People Should Consider Having A Court Wedding.

1. Court Weddings Are Less Stressful.

A court wedding doesn't need too many events planning. One of the benefits of a court wedding is that it can be a small event. With the use of the court wedding, you only have to invite close family and friends. 

After the registry session, you can kick off a small reception anywhere you like. The court marriage will enable you to reserve the money you saved up, and with it, you can start a new life after marriage. 

It will also save you from stress, headaches, and you will understand the usefulness of a courthouse wedding. 

2. You Have Legal Security

A court wedding will protect you and your partner in case things don't go well in the marriage. Nobody is praying for that, but at times things don't work out the way we plan, so having a court wedding might turn out to be a saving grace in case things don't go well after marriage. 

Being married under the court law protects you against the practice of bigamy, and such cases are punished by 5-year imprisonment. So, even if your partner doesn't want the marriage anymore, he or she has to file for divorce before getting married to someone else. You can't just leave the marriage without explanations. 

What is bigamy? 

Bigamy is when someone marries an outsider when they are still married to a person under a court marriage. 

3. Court Marriage Is Fast

A court marriage won't waste your time or make your ceremony long and boring, and it's a fast one. 

When it comes to court wedding, long ceremonies are not your thing. A court wedding can be wrapped in about 30 minutes' time, and couples are already legally married. 

There is nothing like a long sermon, songs when it comes to a court wedding. They always keep the event short and easy for you. 

It saves your time, so you can have more energy to attend your reception, is that not amazing? 

4. There Is No Dressing Code For Court Wedding

Nothing like a dressing code or forcing the couples to look like this or like that. If you dress the way you want to be presented, you don't have to wear a wedding gown to the court wedding, it is optional. 

When it comes to marriage, one of the most expensive things to think about marriage is what to wear, the item of clothes material today is expensive. 

So getting married in the courthouse is indeed a good idea. It will make you feel more comfortable in what you wear, not worrying about the white gown and other clothes expenses. 

5. It Save Money

A court marriage costs less money compared to other extravagant ceremonies. You don't have to spend all your money and go broke in the name of marriage. In some places, registering a marriage in court costs just N2,000. It makes you spend less money, and you and your partner will still answer Mr and Mrs by the law. You don't have to spend millions in the name of marriage.
