These laws haven't caught up
These requirements effectively make it impossible for visiting couples to wed in St. Martin.
The bride and groom must reside in French St. Martin for at least a month prior to the ceremony.
In addition, the couple must reside on the island of St. Maarten/St. Martin for 6 months before the ceremony.
So, forget it until the law changes. As it did in St. Maarten, where it was once illegal for foreigners to marry.
Possible solution: Marry in St. Maarten and honeymoon in St. Martin.
