Happily ever after has been put on hold for lovebirds in the nation’s capital — thanks to the partial government shutdown.
The marriage bureau in Washington, DC, has been closed since Dec. 22 as a result of the shutdown, leaving spouses-to-be with no way of obtaining marriage licenses.
That didn’t stop Dan Pollock and Danielle Geanacopoulos from getting hitched anyway — at least, theoretically.
“When we showed up at the courthouse, they politely turned us away and said there would be no licenses until the government reopens,” Pollock told WJLA in DC. “With no real other options (too short notice to get a license from VA), we chose to embrace the insanity.”
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
