Marriages in Allen County

Could anyone tell me if there was a waiting period for marriages in 1941? For some reason, my aunt married her husband in Fort Wayne on 31 May 1941. Both of them were living in Detroit, Michigan at the time as far as I know and that is what they listed on the marriage license application. I thought that he may have been in the service but the license shows that his current occupation is painting contractor.

Also, is there anyone who could tell me what kind of minister the Rev. Charles W. (?) Houser or Hauser was?

There were several marriages performed Rev. Charles W. Houser in the early 1940's. I looked through some of the marriage applications on the Allen Genealogy Society site. These applications show when the application was made and when the marriage was performed. I found several where the applications was made and the marriage performed on the same day.

My parents were married about the same time. While they were married by the minister from my father's church, they were married in the Chapel at the Fort Wayne YMCA. There is a long story on the "Why", the point being that it is possible that Rev Houser was a young minister also living in near the court house in Fort Wayne and was available to marry them.
