Was married SC, reside in NC.

We arrived thursday to apply for our marrige liscnese.
I forgot my social security card and the ss office was closed.
Since there is a 24 hour waiting period, there was no way we could get our liscenese by saturday, when we were to get married. No officals work on saturday. Well the probate officer recommended that we travel to another county because there was someone there that would “bend” the rules.
We applied for our liscense on friday during business hours. Then on the same day we picked up our liscense after hours at a fireworks stand. Giving the local offical some money of course for thier trouble. So we did not wait 24 hours as thier law requires in SC. However, all the paperwork is dated properly and looks correct.
