Why am I not surprised about this? Anyway, it seems that these attention whores’ wedding might not be legally recognized back in the United States. Sources say Americans must undergo a lengthy process which includes a blood test from a local physician and providing authorities with birth certificates. Further reports say:

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt appear on the Wednesday cover of US Weekly with the headline “Heidi & Spencer Elope!” But were their nuptials a legal marriage, or just an elaborate photo shoot? Images given to US Weekly by the couple show the pair at various stages of a wedding ceremony at a chapel near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Nov.20. The accompanying story features an interview with the couple, as well as details about the rings, Montag’s dress, and the content of their handwritten vows.

The story does not address whether they obtained a marriage license or took part in a separate civil ceremony, which is required by Mexican law to make a union binding.

A couple can register their marriage up to 10 days after a ceremony, but California does not recognize marriage ceremonies outside the United States, according to the state’s Department of Public Health. A couple can petition a court later to have their marriage legally recognized.

What do you think? Legal marriage or just more attention whoring from these two?
