How can I get a divorce if the marriage license has not been completed? Posted on February 18, 2011

I got married earlier this month and the preacher gave my wife the marriage license to mail in. She refuses to, the marriage is not working and there is nothing I can do about it because of that now. I tried to file for divorce but since there is no record yet of us getting married that cannot be done. Is there a time line before the license have to be turned in, can we get in legal trouble for that or after so long will the license be void? She is also threatening me with the whole adultery thing when I am completely innocent. Is there anything I can do?
