Yes. To obtain a marriage license, each person must sign the marriage application in person in the presence of the register of deeds or in the presence of a person appointed by the register to act in the register's behalf. Each person must provide proof of age before the marriage license can be issued. Proof of age can be satisfied by providing a certified copy of a birth certificate or any photographic identification which includes the person's name and date of birth.
In South Dakota, do I have to prove my age before I can receive a marriage license?
