Gertrude Don Angelo née Mansfield had to remarry her husband of 59 years to prove that she no longer uses her maiden name.
The Don Angelos were joined in holy matrimony on Oct. 11, 1947, at St. Sylvester's Church in Brooklyn, N.Y., but the couple never obtained a certified state record of their union. They always had a certificate of marriage from the church, but that wasn't good enough when Gertrude, 76, tried to renew her driver's license late last year.
So after 59 years of marriage, the couple came to an awkward realization: They needed to be married once again, simply to get their hands on a state document. [Link]
