The cost of marriage in Rhode Island may be going up.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved legislation that would add a $46 surcharge to the current $24 cost of a marriage license. Two of the dollars would go toward to the city or town and the remain $44 would be donated to the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The bill is estimated to raise $200,000 a year for the coalition to put toward domestic violence prevention programs.
