AKRON, Ohio - It only happens "once in a century," she says, and so to commemorate the special occasion, an Ohio judge has donned the robe as Justice of the Peace for a day. Many couples across the nation chose Tuesday to get married, thanks to its unique date structure: 11/12/13.
Akron Municipal Court Judge Kathryn Michael started performing weddings -- each one about 15 minutes long -- at 10 a.m. in the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center on High Street in Akron.
That’s because Tuesday is November 12, 2013: 11/12/13.
Michael says in a news release, the date “has its own special meaning.”
The municipal court performs more than 500 ceremonies a year, according to the news release.
