    marriage by skype

    Me and my fiancee are trying to get married and he is active duty in Texas Fort Sam Houston. My register of deeds said that we can obtain a marriage certificate by him sending me a noterized alfadata. She said if we do that he wont sign the marriage certificate at the ceromony but its still binding and legal. And Im about to have a baby in 2 weeks they told him he cant come for the birth if were not married. My question is can we do a cermony through skype some how or on web cam because he cant be in NC now. Please help wat can we do?

    I don't believe you can do that but it may depend on the specific laws of the state where you intend to get married. You should look into establishing a common law marriage, that way you may be able to avoid having the ceremony.

    Apperently, skype type marriages are legal in Texas and seem to be legal in other states as to the Millitary and sweethearts in the States. Check it out with the local Provost Advocate (millitary lawyer) at your nearest base. You might be surprised at the strings he/she can pull. Good luck.
