With Florida’s 1,800 miles of coastline, average high temperatures in the 80s, endless beaches and awe-inspiring sunsets, it’s no wonder 1,000 people a day move to the Sunshine State. From major metropolises to sleepy beach towns, Florida cities fit the bill for adventure, romance and relaxation.
Florida is a relatively easy state in which to marry. Apply for your marriage license (valid for 60 days) in any county, regardless of where the wedding will take place. There’s no waiting period if you and your intended have completed a state-sanctioned marriage-prep course or reside out of state (otherwise, there’s a three-day waiting period). In addition, prospective couples are now required to read a 16-page booklet about divorce, which describes child-support payments and situations such as how a court would divide their assets. The booklet is obtained from the City Court House.
