My husband's grandparents could not get a travel visa unless they
had a civil marriage document. The religious license did not do! They
were forced to "re-marry" with a civil license. After that, their visa
was granted. Being that this was the only document I could find,
imagine the raised eyebrows when everyone saw that they wed AFTER all
of their children were born.
