The Denver Clerk and Recorder’s Office handed out a whopping 3,803 marriage licenses so far in 2017 That’s a 12 percent increase from 2016, year to date.
If Monday, July 3, was any indication of how Summer will go, we’ll set a new record again this year, Clerk Debra Johnson said. We issued 79 marriage licenses and believe we had more than 65 marriages on Independence Eve.
Historically, more couples tie the knot in Denver June through September. We issued 895 marriage licenses in June the most so far this year in a single month, Johnson added. Our record last year was 980 in August.
Over the last decade, marriage totals rose an average of six percent annually.
