REPEALED: There can be no marriage if the contracting parties have not previously obtained a marriage license, which the contracting parties have provided themselves with a marriage license which shall be issued, at the request of either of the parties by the registrar of the district in which either of the contracting parties resides. Said license shall be delivered by the contracting parties before the ceremony, to the priest, minister, or magistrate who is to perform the same. No fee shall be collected for the issuance of the said license. If one or both parties are not residents of Puerto Rico, said license shall be issued by the registrar of the district in which the marriage is to be held. In the event that the marriage is to be held in articulo mortis, the official authorizing it may issue the license. When applying for a marriage license, the contracting parties shall be provided a summary of the Premarital Counseling Course drafted by the Department of the Family. If the contracting parties present evidence of having completed such type of course, it shall be thus noted in the license issued by the Registrar. [Repealed]
