Unlike getting a divorce, it is fairly easy to get married, most people would agree.
But, even so, there are a few impediments to marriage. As some rudely discover.
Woman has been involved with Man for eighteen years. Eighteen.
Now the time has come for them to tie the knot. Woman applies for marriage license.

New York City clerks informed Woman that she is … already married. Since the age of 18.
To a man she is quite certain she has never met. At a time when she was already living with the lucky Man she wants to marry now … and some other extended family members.
