Most states have a website where you can look up public court records. I would start by going to your local government website and browse until you find family court or you could enter "marriage certificates" in the search area of the site and see what comes up. You could also call the county courthouse during regular hours and ask them. Don't pay a website for this. If you do your own research, you will find what you want and marriage records are public record. These sites that want you to pay are anticipating many people who just don't know where to look, or are too impatient to find it themselves.
