Guess the state: Couple were briefly refused a marriage license because clerk didn't know this was a state

Recommended Posts




Then, while trying to get a marriage license on Nov. 20, he had to argue with a D.C. Superior Court clerk who apparently didn’t know New Mexico is a state.


Clarkson said the clerk told him she couldn’t accept an international driver’s license and asked for his “New Mexico passport.” Clarkson lives in the Land of Enchantment, but visits the District to see his fiancee.


“I do not have to pass through customs,” he said in an interview with The Washington Post. The incident was first reported by the Las Cruces Sun-News.

New Mexico grows such high quality chiles that Mexicans regularly import them.

My mother in law grows hatch chiles in New Mexico on her little farm and always brings my wife a couple of big sacks of dried chiles with her when she comes for a visit <3

New Mexico is beautiful.



I also nearly had my marriage license in Ohio (where my wife and I got married) not issued because the clerk didn't understand that where I lived in Virginia (Richmond city) was not part of a county.


What are you supposed to do with Arlington on forms, since there's nothing below the county?
