Being a Justice of the Peace

My friends often ask me, “Why do you do the JP stuff?” My answer is always the same,” What’s not to like.”

I explain that I meet many, many interesting people. I become involved with them at one of the happiest times of their lives and work hard to make certain that their wedding ceremony is special and memorable. I continue to use my skills as a former English teacher and counselor through writing and helping them deal with the stresses that sometimes, unfortunately, accompany wedding planning – more on that in a later post. Finally, I become attached to all the couples that I marry as we share a special time together and I have the privilege to announce that they are married.

Yes, it keeps me busy, often at nights and  on the weekends, but the experiences are priceless, the people I meet are wonderful, and the fees I receive enable me to continue to help something I am deeply passionate about – the rescue and adoption of racing greyhounds.

So, what’s not to like?

If you were looking into becoming a justice of the peace in order to conduct wedding ceremonies and found that the requirements were much more stringent than what you expected or are ready to commit to, there is another way to do it.
