How to get a Marriage License
When you choose a religious wedding ceremony, you’ll be dealing with another Government: the Church Government. So be ready to comply with their “religious documentary requirements” because of the Constitutional principle of “separation of the Church and State”. The three (3) branches of the Philippine government has nothing to do with these Churches’ requirements.
Just like when you want to drive a car, the government requires you to submit basic documents i.e. age limit, etc., attend their “driving seminar” before granting you a “driver’s license”.
