We all know someone who's been married more than a few times. But is there a maximum number of times someone can tie the knot in Michigan?

Maybe you're considering getting married. Congratulations! But if one of you has been married a handful of times, is the state going to look at you sideways? Is the number of times you're been married in the past going to be a red flag?

What is the Maximum Number of Times You Can be Married in Michigan?

The good news is, that no law prevents you from wearing out the carpet on the path down the aisle. In other words, there is no law limiting the number of times you can get married in Michigan.

But there are a few other rules that you have to abide by.

The #1 Rule for Marriage in Michigan

First and foremost, there can only be two people in a marriage. In Michigan, you are only allowed to have one spouse at a time. Like it or not, polygamy is a felony in our state.

Michigan Now Has an Age Limit for Marriage

In 2022, Human Rights Watch gave Michigan a failing grade when it came to protecting children. At that time, teens who were 16 or 17 years old could get married with the consent of a parent. Anyone under 16 was allowed to marry with the signature of a judge and parental permission.

That changed in 2023 when new legislation was enacted making 18 the legal age for marriage in Michigan.

What is the Waiting Time Between Marriages in Michigan?

According to Michigan law, there is no specific waiting period before getting remarried. However, all previous marriages must be fully dissolved first.

Some states and the District of Columbia, however, do require a waiting period once a divorce is complete before someone can get remarried.

Those states are Alabama, Kansas, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, and Wisconsin. Waiting periods range from 30 days to six months.
