Re: Perry County AL Marriage Data

It would not surprise me if Alabama did away with the surety bond (the fee demanded was often so onerous that a lot of couples simply cohabitated rather than pay it) but left the oath as to no legal impediment to a valid marriage, in place.

An interesting observation about possible cohabiting when any fee imposed for the surety bond was not affordable. Will take a longer look at the history.
