Valen­tines get quickie mar­riage li­censes at Las Ve­gas air­port

Global Times - - Mosaic -

The Las Ve­gas air­port has given new mean­ing to rush­ing to make a con­nec­tion, of­fer­ing quickie wed­ding li­censes for love­birds des­per­ate to get hitched on Valen­tine’s Day.

Clark County, the au­thor­ity that ad­min­is­ters Sin City’s wed­dings, has opened a pop-up mar­riage li­cense bu­reau by a bag­gage carousel at McCar­ran In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

On Satur­day a steady stream of cou­ples ar­rived at the of­fice – open through Fe­bru­ary 17 – to get their mar­riages off the ground with­out all the fuss.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited that they ac­tu­ally did this, be­cause it’s a lot more stress hav­ing to come through the air­port, then get to the county clerk’s of­fice, wait in line,” said Ste­fanie, of Dal­las, Texas, who was mar­ry­ing part­ner Kisha.

“So this was re­ally pain­less and re­ally quick. So, very con­ve­nient.”

The US desert oa­sis known for all-night gam­bling, ex­trav­a­gant shows and no-holds-barred booz­ing has for decades also been a mag­net for cou­ples from around the world look­ing to tie the knot quickly and cheaply – the kitschier the cer­e­mony, the bet­ter.
