Minot, North Dakota's very own Josh Duhamel, and his fiance' Audra Marie have taken the next step towards marriage.  The actor, model, and beauty pageant winner have gotten a marriage license at the Cass County Courthouse, according to an article at InForum.

Duhamel and Mari were spotted in the Cass County Courthouse finance office on Friday, Aug. 26, applying for a marriage license.  This was confirmed according to Treasury Manager Alicia Hildebrand.  Duhamel and Mari paid a total of $65 dollars for the license, which allows them to get married anywhere in North Dakota in the next 60 days.

So, when will the happy couple tie the knot and where?  That is the million-dollar question.  Will it be in Josh Duhamel's hometown of Minot, North Dakota, where he graduated from Minot High School and received his bachelor's degree at Minot State University?  Or will it be in Audra Mari's hometown of Fargo, where she graduated from Fargo Davies High School?  Will it be some completely different secret location in North Dakota?  Wherever it goes down, something tells me it's going to happen sooner than later.

The two announced to the world they would be getting engaged on Josh's Instagram account in early 2022 on a beach in Florida.  The same day that Audra Mari celebrated her 28th birthday.  Josh Duhamel is nearly twice Audri's age at 49.

My family and I got a chance to meet Audra Mari in Fargo a few years back when she attended a wedding of a mutual friend of ours.  The former Miss North Dakota was kind enough to even share a dance with my son.

Josh Duhamel and Audra Marie met each other through a mutual friend in Los Angeles in 2019 and have been a couple ever since.

We wish them many years of happiness.
