Record Number In Cumberland County File For Marriage Licenses

Posted December 30, 2004

— Cumberland County is handling much more than returning troops.

The county has had a record number of people file for marriage licenses -- its highest number in five years.

Couples are swamping the county's license office with as many as 30 a day.

Officials credit the recent boom to the war in Iraq. Marriages were put off when it started and are being squeezed in between deployments.
