I know this was a proxy wedding, but I just wonder
what the young man did with his $60? A large amount
for that time.

Hi Mitch

Proxy marriages have always been around. These days it raises some interesting questions re right of citizenship/abode as proxy marriages are legal in some countries and not in others. There's a debate going on at the moment about the legality of marriages conducted over Skype!

I have read about proxy marriages, a lot in the early days of populating our country, wasn't even thinking about them taking place now!
Thanks for the info, Jeni.
