The 189th General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT RELATIVE TO CERTAIN MARRIAGE LAWS.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith to repeal certain laws prohibiting certain non-residents from marrying in the commonwealth, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

SECTION 1. Sections 11, 12 and 13 of chapter 207 of the General Laws are hereby repealed.

SECTION 2. Section 50 of said chapter 207 is hereby repealed.

Approved July 31, 2008
