A woman was clearly intoxicated when she and her boyfriend applied for a marriage license. However, both the husband and wife were fairly sober at the time of their wedding. Is the marriage valid?

Here, the marriage would likely be valid. Although there was an irregularity in the issuance of the husband and first wife’s marriage license, an irregularity in the licensing process, generally, does not result in the marriage to be invalid.  This is particularly true when both the husband and wife believe there has been a valid marriage.
