The minimum age for a marriage license is 16. Applicants under the age of 18 must have a certified copy of their birth certificate (long form) that was issued in the last 10 years, as well as parental consent or judicial approval.

The waiting period is 72 hours, but may be waived by court order. Active duty military are exempt from the waiting period. There is a 30-day waiting period after a divorce is granted within the state of Texas.

A witness may not be required to receive a marriage license in Texas, but it is necessary to have an authorized officiant be present at the ceremony to act as a witness to the wedding and examine the validity of the marriage certificate.

A marriage license costs $81.00 cash. Couples who complete "Twogether in Texas," the State of Texas approved marriage education class, do not have to pay the $60.00 State portion of the marriage license fee, but only have to pay the smaller County portion which varies by County.

A blood test is not required.

For U.S. citizens, proof of residency in Texas or proof of U.S citizenship is required in the form of a Texas driver's license or ID card, residency card, or birth certificate.
