TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Tuesday has been marked as the ultimate palindrome and some couples headed to the courthouse on this special day.
The date: 2-2-22.

A total of eight weddings took place Tuesday at the Leon County Clerk of Courts Office and 13 marriage licenses were issued.
"I think everything being in alignment means a lot to people who are getting married. You know making sure you're on the same page and making sure things line up how you'd like; not just in your union, but in your life and within the universe. So I think that has a big impact on people's decision," Bennie Edmonson, the groom, said.
