You have the right to remain silent...

...anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law...if you commit any of these wedding-related crimes.
In South Carolina, if a man over 16 proposes marriage to an unwed woman without actually intending to marry her, he’s guilty of a misdemeanor...

In North Carolina, it’s against the law to “pretend” to be married when registering for a hotel room.

In Montana, a couple can marry even if neither of them is present.

For several embarrassing months in late 2007 and early 2008, Arkansas state law mistakenly allowed persons of any age, even twee toddlers, to marry as long as they had parental consent.

...in Alabama,...women are entitled to keep any and all possessions that they acquired prior to the marriage in the event of a divorce, but no such allowance is made for the man.

In New Orleans, Louisiana, it is illegal for anyone claiming to be a palm reader, fortune teller, mystic healer or any other magic-possessing hoodwinker to offer up marriage services...

Read the full version of these weird wedding laws here. You might be surprised by some of their twists and turns.
