Perhaps one of the happiest events in the life of a person would be the day that he or she would get married, but one must note that not because two people are in love, they would be married right away. Aside from the usual ups and downs in a relationship that we have come to expect from glamorized love stories shown in the media, one must also take into consideration the fact that governments are involved in marriages, not as a party to the same, but as a sort of regulating agent, because marriages creates new statuses, rights, duties, responsibilities, and obligations not only for the couple who would be married, but also third persons, and even those who are not yet born. The records that the government would collect would become part of a collection of records, such as the Sacramento County Marriage Records.
Marriage records are public records, but like all copies of marriage records, copies of Marriage Records Sacramento County are classified either as informational or certified copies, and while the two types give the same information, certified copies are not public records in the sense that they are only available to a number of people that are identified by law. Informational copies are available to everyone, but unlike certified copies, they could not be used for official purposes. This is so to reduce, or even prevent, records being tampered with.
