My first marriage was officiated by a judge... in his golfing picture

:hystery: Talking of Golfing Judges reminds me of Our wedding by a Judge, Our Judge was by the usual Lottery at  the Halls of Justice, He would not marry us on the day we wanted because he was having a Golfing Lesson at the time we wanted the Ceremony, But when we complained to him and he saw the Marriage Sponsor list he saw that one of Primary Sponsors (and his wife) was His Law School Mentor  and another Sponsor was a Circuit Judge in the same Halls of Justice + My Stand in Parents ( as mine were both deceased) were a Retired Senior Supreme Court Judge ( Retired) he soon changed his Mind. I am sure, it was because it would have shamed him if this got out. :whatever:

Simple.

I waited for the first Mrs to divorce ME in the UK (as I wasn't bothered, and certainly wasn't going to pay)...and such 'foreign' divorces are perfectly legal in the Phils for us FOREIGNERS, of course. Only their own CITIZENS are subject to the 'no-divorce' rule here...and a problem for them, not 'us'.

Then, after having visited the original divorce court in the UK for a copy of my 'Decree Absolute' (9 years later), this was taken to my appointment at the British Embassy in Manila, in order to procure my 'Affirmation of Marital Status '....which was later presented (along with a letter from the Embassy) in order to procure my/our marriage licence, up here in the province. No problem at all.
