East ender Posted June 26, 2011 Report Share Posted June 26, 2011 I've been a ULC minister since 2007 & registered in NYC to marry. But I live in Southampton & now the Marriage Equality passed, I want to also register to marry people there. However the license app (on the Town's site) says ULC marriages are illegal !!! Town's website (http://www.southamptontownny.gov/filestorage/760/762/792/1054/1422/MarriageLicenseApp.pdf) has at the bottom, a note which says: "NOTE: Ship Captains are not authorized to perform marriage ceremonies in New York State and universal life ministers are not recognized. THESE MARRIAGES COULD BE LEGALLY CHALLENGED"Yet the Code for NY State Domestic Relations does not contain any language beyond ship captains not being authorized. What to do!!!
