HOUSTON (KIAH) With Valentine’s Day around the corner, the Harris County Clerk’s
(HCCO) reports that the number of marriage licenses issued in 2021 doubled
in comparison to 2020 when the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus forced a lockdown
of public facing county services. Currently, HCCO is issuing an average of 200
marriage licenses per day.

“Valentine’s Day is always a busy time for the Harris County Clerk’s Office and things
are looking up in regards to the number of couples planning to get married in the near
future,” said Harris County Clerk Teneshia Hudspeth. “Couples continue applying
for marriage licenses despite the recent heightened COVID-19 threat level.”
