Well,
When you consider the obvious fact that the world is gradually becoming anti-matrimony,
You come to understand that the marriage certificate is priceless and has many uses.

The most important uses are the gifts of ownership and THE sense of belonging(. . . . as in: who loves you daddy? cool)

No, you don't get that on FaceBook. wink

The marriage certificate is the ULTIMATE, global, utility stampage for the legitimization of YOUR children and your future generation.

Or you may just end up with a progeny of 'rascals'(aka  bast.ard.s). grin

Need I say more? wink

!Get Yours!
!Keep Yours!
!Don't Kill Yours! kiss

Bottom line:

The marriage certificate seperates rational beings from 'ye-ye fowls'. kiss

I couldn't have said it better myself. A marriage certificate does no man any good in case of a divorce proceedings but it's definitely leverage for a woman when it comes to "what's yours is mine and what's mine is mine" laws!

More reasons why it's crazy for a man to get married.
Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by zayhal(f): 12:43pm On Feb 18, 2011
In Nigeria, if you get married before your NYSC and wants to be posted to the state where your hubby is, a marriage certificate must be tendered.
Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by Busybody2(f): 1:49pm On Feb 18, 2011

Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by saintneo(m): 3:06pm On Feb 18, 2011
From a critical point of view, I think marriage certificate should be replaced with marriage contract which specifies the KPIs of the parties involved in the marriage and the conditions for divorce.

Why we use ATM weather we know that its very dangerous.
Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by Carlosein(m): 4:59pm On Feb 18, 2011
Is this not like asking: What are the uses of my WAEC certificate

i'm not a lawyer, but i think this certifies that a marriage/wedding was validly carried out between the parties involved.

whatever use we put this document later on in life is entirely up to us (just like my friend who gave his statement of result to mama alakara for some akara grin).

Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by Olateef(m): 6:02pm On Feb 18, 2011
there should be an expiry date on the marriage certificate,
Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by omogidi234(m): 6:32pm On Feb 18, 2011
According to the Marriage Act, a marriage certificate is an evidence of the celebration of the marriage. Just like other posters said, WAEC certificate shows that you wrote GCE or SSCE, BSc certificate shows that you have a first degree etc. In case of "awon abelejayan" your marriage certificate asserts and backs any claim that you are married. Upon the presentation of it, the onus is on the other party to show that you are not married as you claimed.

Best regards.

Evidence of enslavement - just joking grin
Re: What Are The Uses Of Marriage Certificate? by lastpage: 12:54am On Feb 19, 2011
After a few pages, l will like to give "an award" to the most pertinent answer (one that tallies with current reality!) on this topic.

So far, l have been rolling with laughter, from one corner to another, reading some of the comments!
Take for example:
1.) Proof of ownership! Na Car
2.) Evidence of enslavement! Wetin, show me the love please tongue
3.) It should have an expiry date! Haaba, Na DRUG?
4.) "In case of "awon abelejayan" your marriage certificate asserts and backs any claim that you are married"! This one hard O! Fishmongers embarassed
5.) "should be replaced with marriage contract which specifies the KPIs of the parties involved in the marriage and the conditions for divorce". You be one of those Abuja Contractor! grin  How can you be thinking of "divorce" when you're just planning a wedding?
6.) "it seems is more beneficial to woman than men."! Benefit ke? I thought its about LOVE nwan-tintin
7.) "@Busy_body. prove 2 who?" ; "wait oh, i'm coming, i will be back soon"! Walahi, this is like doing U-TURN on a Motorway!
8.) "marriage certificate is a paper that reminds a[b] man of his slavery[/b] and the woman of her future asset "! shocked shocked This is SCARY!
9.) "it's definitely leverage for a woman when it comes to "what's yours is mine and what's mine is mine" laws! This cant be true!! INJUSTICE shocked
10.) "The marriage certificate is the ULTIMATE, global, utility stampage for the legitimization of YOUR children and your future generation" Shooo! One couple took theirs to the Canadian Embassy, to do the usual "paternity test" for people intending to settle in Canada and results showed that NONE OF THE THREE CHILDREN were his own! grin Well, "marriage" scattered right from the gate of the Embassy"! Shine your eyes on that Cert Pls shocked shocked
11.) "I knew a couple then that hanged theirs in their sitting room"! More like that "Beware of Dogs" signage in the front gate wink Because of "Awon abeleja-yan"! grin
12.) "we use it to light a candle on valentines day"! I bet this couple wont be doing many Valentines!! grin grin Go buy a Cigarette lighter pls or better still, set the whole house on fire and use it to light the Valentine candle---- hic-hic-hic grin
13.) Its the only certificate[b] u collect before writing the exam[/b] and then u use all your life to defend that certificate! This is scandalous! grin shocked


Please, lets have more of these weird reasons!

If you live in the west, l think it is the "Ultimate money-making, magic paper" any woman could have grin
Go ask Tiger Wood's wife, Tyson's Wife or that woman that got 500Million Dollars or so, from her Billionaire ex-Husband tongue

BTW: Credits to the 'original posters' of the quotes above.
