How It Works
A proxy wedding, sometimes referred to as an "online wedding", can be performed when both parties cannot attend in-person. The state of Kansas allows proxy representation, where a 3rd party is given legal authority to represent or stand in for someone else. When a couple wishes to be married but cannot both attend due to various reason, a "Single Proxy Marriage" can resolve the issue of distance.
In the state of Kansas you CAN be legally married as long as one of you is physically present for the ceremony. The other can attend via proxy and there are NO residency requirement. Your individual situation could be due to military deployment, incarceration, international or travel restrictions due to health, etc. A proxy wedding is also available to same sex couples.
