You Can Now Legally Get Married Through Video Call

2020 vision.

Most of us have had to put our lives on hold until further notice due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and couples who had planned and prepared for spring and summer weddings have had to go through cancellations and changes of plans. Whether you’ve been postponing the celebrations or getting your closest friends together for socially distanced fun, there’s no doubt that things have changed. Now, you can get married using Zoom.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced through Twitter that couples in the state would now be able to legally get married through videoconference. “I am issuing an Executive Order allowing New Yorkers to obtain a marriage license remotely and allowing clerks to perform ceremonies via video conference,” stated Cuomo, adding that he plans to put the order through this week.
