What are the records of marriage in Randolph County? Every marriage in the state of Alabama is filed in the county where it was performed. The word “matrimony” itself is derived from “araba”, which is an Old English word meaning court. So, by definition, any marriage that happens in a court of law in Alabama is recorded and can be viewed by anyone who’s interested. In the past, public access to these records was controlled by the state but in 2021, the supreme court ruled that all states should have same sex marriage records.
