    I don't know of any state that requires counseling prior to the issuance of a marriage license. The local court house can advise you concerning all fees and availability of a judge to perform the ceremony.

    From About.com

    Identification Requirement
    Two valid forms of id such as drivers license, birth certificate, U. S. passport, Armed Forces ID card, or Resident Alien ID card. Applicants will also be asked to fill out a brief form.

    Premarital Education:
    Cobb County offers a free Marital Workshop called FOCUS ON FOREVER. It is a skill-based non-religious workshop designed to address issues concerning communication and listening skills, anger management, and financial planning. Contact the Cobb County Superior Court for more information.
    By state law, counties in Georgia now charge more for a marriage license if you do not show certification of a premarital education program.

    Waiting Period:
    There is no waiting period for getting married in Georgia.

    Fees:
    It costs approximately $65.00 + to get married in Georgia. Some counties will only accept cash. The amount of the marriage license fee will be decreased by showing proof of receiving premarital counseling.

    Other Tests:
    As of July 1, 2003, blood tests are no longer required in Georgia.

    Michigan USED to require counseling prior to the issuance of a marriage license. That was 13 years ago. Don't know if they still do.
