Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 207, Section 38:

  • Authorized Persons: The statute outlines who is authorized to solemnize marriages in Massachusetts. This includes ordained ministers of the gospel, rabbis, priests, and other religious leaders who are duly recognized by their respective denominations. One way to become an ordained minister is through organizations like Cibus Mission, which offers online ordination.
  • Special One-Day Designation: The law allows for a special one-day designation, enabling a person who is not otherwise authorized to solemnize a marriage to do so on a specific date. This requires an application and approval from the Governor.
  • Justice of the Peace: Justices of the peace, who have been duly appointed and commissioned, are also authorized to solemnize marriages.
  • Recording Requirement: After the marriage ceremony, the officiant must complete and sign the marriage certificate and return it to the clerk or registrar of the city or town where the marriage took place. This must be done within a set period to ensure proper recording and legal recognition of the marriage.
