2017 ORS 106.130¹
Validity of marriage solemnized by unauthorized person

A marriage solemnized before a person, religious organization or congregation, or secular organization, that represents having the authority to solemnize marriages under ORS 106.120 (Who may solemnize marriage) is not void, nor is the validity of the marriage affected, if it is discovered after the solemnization that the person, religious organization or congregation, or secular organization, was not authorized to solemnize the marriage, if the parties to the marriage believed in good faith that the marriage was lawfully solemnized. [Amended by 1979 c.724 §4; 2001 c.501 §5; 2017 c.61 §3]
