Abstract

Marriage is important to the Virginia domestic relations code. It is also important to a strong Virginia. The pace at which marriage has been revised around the United States may have Virginians, and even lawyers, understandably a bit uncertain about the law on marriage in Virginia. This article will clarify Virginia law on marriage, provide an overview of recent legal events surrounding marriage regulation, and discuss the effects of those events on Virginia family law.

Keywords: marriage, state law, domestic relations regulation
