ROANOKE, Va. -

Tuesday doesn't usually strike many people as a great day to get married.

But, that changed this Tuesday, November 12, 2013 or 11-12-13.

Across the country, justices of the peace were expecting to be busy.

In Roanoke, the clerk of court didn't have anyone scheduled to be married, but Chris Randell and Samantha Young came in and decided to take the plunge.

"I'm horrible with dates, I wouldn't even remember my birthday if it wasn't the first of the month," laughs Randell explaining.

Chris says the date will make his new anniversary easy to remember.

The couple met through mutual friends.

They say a honeymoon will have to wait, both were heading to work.
