ING TO EXPIRATION OF MARRIAGE LICENSES.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. § 107, Title 13, Delaware Code is amended by adding a new subsection thereunder to read as follows:

In the event the marriage ceremony is not performed within 30 days, said license shall be void and the parties must reapply to the appropriate issuing officer for another license to marry. No refund or rebate shall be given for the unused license, nor shall said license be reinstated or post-dated. The procedure to secure another license shall be the same as that provided for the initial application including compliance with Section 141 of this Chapter.

Section 2. This Act shall become effective on September 1, 1961, provided however, that any marriage license issued prior to September 1, 1961, will be valid until and including September 30, 1961.

Approved July 10, 1961.
