When I saw a news story this morning that Michelle Obama had officiated at a wedding over the weekend, it got me thinking. I kind of knew that ex-First Ladies do not have an automatic right to perform marriages. Yes, she, as a very qualified lawyer, could easily be a Justice of the Peace (JP), but I had never heard of her mentioned as a JP. Then I vaguely recalled that I had also read that Barack had officiated at a wedding.

Is that a prerogative of a President and does it get carried over even when he leaves office.

I had to look it up.

Aaaahhhh! Simple when you know. They became ‘Temporary Officiants‘. In their case that would not been very hard. Cool. Neat. Glad I looked it up.

I wanted to share.
