I needed to provide proof of my marriage for OSAP (student loans for college in Ontario). I brought my marriage license up. It has everything they need on it, my name (maiden and married), my husband's information, our marriage date, the officiants name, our location of marriage, etc.
When I dropped it off the man taking the info said it was fine, however, I got an email from another lady saying it isn't enough because "marriage licenses expire after 3 months".
It doesn't make sense. How can a marriage license expire after 3 months? Especially if it has proof that we married? I got the license right from Service Ontario, I ordered it not even 3 months ago.
Now, we have to go to a Service Ontario desk and get a sworn affidavit to prove we're married.
