Who is Legally Authorized to Solemnize a Marriage?

Assuming the parties have obtained a valid marriage license, the following officials may solemnize the marriage:

  • any minister of the gospel ordained according to the rules of his church or society, in good standing; or
  • any Rabbi or other spiritual leader of any other religious body authorized under the rules of the religious body to solemnize rites of matrimony and in good standing; or
  • any judge of the supreme court, court of appeals, circuit court, chancery court, county court, or justice court; or
  • members of the board of supervisors within their respective counties.

Marriage between persons of the same gender is prohibited by Mississippi law and is null and void from the beginning. Even if a same-sex couple is legally married in a state that recognizes same-sex marriage, the validity of the marriage is not recognized under Mississippi law.
