Twogether in Texas

That Texas Legislature is serious about resolving conflict, especially in the marriage context.  A law goes into effect Monday for all of those who want to enjoy the benefits of marital bliss.  In addition to the marriage fee increasing from $30 to $60, couples must now go to a conflict resolution class before a county clerk will issue a marriage certificate.  The Houston Chronicle reports that if you want to get married, you and your soon-to-be spouse must take an 8 hour class that provides communication, conflict resolution, and "healthy marriage" skills.  If you take the class, the newer, more expensive fee can be waived.
