If there is one thing we can all agree on, it would probably be the fact that life is unpredictable. Add to the mix a commitment to proudly serve your country and suddenly situations which may seem impossible become a reality.
- Soon after being deployed, a soldier learns he is going to be a father, yet his baby and the mother of his baby cannot obtain housing unless he can prove they are married. He is deployed and will not be back in time to help make arrangements for his family to be together.
- An engaged couple, serving in the military, discover they are going to be sent in different directions. If they were able to present themselves as a married couple, they could be assigned to the same area, but there isn’t enough time to plan a wedding and invite friends and relatives.
- While stationed in another country, a member of the military has fallen in love with a citizen of that country. The expense and time it would take to organize and complete all the requirements for a foreign wedding is not practical or perhaps not even feasible.
These are EXACTLY the types of situations in which Double Proxy Marriage is helpful. If you are a member of the military OR a resident of the State of Montana, and you and your intended are unable to be together UNTIL you can prove you are married, our services could be just what you need. The term “proxy,” according to the dictionary, means “authority or power to act for another.” Since you and your partner are unable to be in the same place at the same time in order to either meet a deadline or simply fulfill your desire to be married, A Big Sky Event will provide a bride and a groom to sign the marriage license on your behalf. While there are a few states that allow single proxy marriage (meaning one of the parties must be present), the state of Montana is currently the only state which allows double proxy marriage, where neither party’s presence is required.
Perhaps you are thinking, “But this is not the wedding I’ve dreamed of!”
Double proxy marriage makes your union legal and allows for marital status change and name change. However, nothing can take away from the love you have for your partner; we may help you secure the date, but everything else is up to you! Along with the status of “married,” couples are given the gift of time; time to prepare a beautiful ceremony to celebrate their marriage with family and friends when their loved one returns or when they are reunited. It is our pleasure to be able to provide the double proxy service in the beautiful state of Montana; we look forward to being able to help each and every one of our customers. If you think double proxy marriage might be the service you’ve been looking for, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
