Town named Hell offering free Leap Day weddings

Matches made in heaven, formalized in Hell.

The township of Hell, Michigan — population 70 — is offering a devilishly good opportunity this Leap Day, Feb. 29, for those looking to avoid the purgatory of wedding planning: free nuptials for 29 couples, to take place at 2:29 p.m.

“When you get married in Hell, there’s nowhere for your marriage to go but up,” the Rev. Yvonne Williams, who will be officiating the mass knot-tying, tells the Detroit Free Press.

The ceremony will take place no matter what — even if Hell has frozen over that day, which it quite literally did in January 2019.

“It’ll happen in whatever weather Michigan gives us that day,” Williams says. The forecast currently predicts a chance of snow.

The group wedding will be “short and sweet,” she adds, estimating it will take less than 10 minutes.

Interested couples can sign up by texting Williams at (810) 623-1125 with their full name, address and confirmation that they have secured a valid marriage license. Non-Michigan couples need to get licenses from the Livingston County courthouse, while in-state couples can bring one from any Michigan county.

In addition to avoiding wedding debt, those who marry on Leap Day will also enjoy less expensive anniversaries, as their wedding date will only come once every four years.
