Can’t Get Marrage Information

Postby Vaccano » Sun May 19, 2019 8:42 am

I am doing my Membership Audit, and it says the check the box next to all members who have a living spouse.

I have two members in my ward that we know are married, but their records do not show that. When I select them, it says that I have 30 days to get that “fixed”.

But they do not care for the church and would not give us the date or place of marrage.

So.... do I check them and just not be able to update it....?

Or do I leave it un checked and pretend that I don’t know....?

(I don’t really like either option.)

You may need only the year. You might check and see if you can find it in the public records.

I believe the "30 days to get it fixed" is a request or recommendation. It may take longer than that for some situations. We have had some take longer than 30 days and no one got in trouble for that.

I would check it, and do my best to find the information. If I can't find it, then that is all I can do. If a Stake Clerk had problems with my "unsuccessful efforts," I would ask them to help me find the information.
