How Many Times Can You Get Married in Michigan?

It is quite a simple answer.

There is no limit to how many times you can be married in Michigan.

In all actuality, you can get married as many times as you want in all U.S. States.

What Are The Guidelines For Marriage In Michigan?

While you can get married multiple times with no restrictions, you still need to follow a few rules.

To get married in the state of Michigan, you have to be 18 years old. If you are over 16 years old but are under 18, you have to get written consent from a parent or legal guardian.


You have to apply for marriage in the county that you reside in. If you and your spouse-to-be live in different counties but are both Michigan residents, you can submit documents in both counties.

There is also a restriction on how many people you can be married to at one time.

MI Divorce Papers shared,

"If you have been married before, the previous marriage should be officially finalized. Polygamy, or trying to register a new marriage while still married, is a felony in Michigan."

Also, you do not have to wait a specific amount of time before you can marry again like in other states.
