Bad luck on Friday the 13th

Do you believe Friday the thirteenth brings bad luck?

Couples who got married Friday must not.

The Probate Court in Dougherty County was not as busy as they normally are on a Friday.

Three couples were scheduled to say their I-do's this afternoon, but only one of them showed up.

Judge Baxter Howell says this time of year isn't the busiest for weddings and he wasn't worried about being a bearer of bad luck.

"I'm not superstitious about Friday the 13th. The spike comes in December for tax purposes, they want to get married at the end of the year," said Dougherty County Judge Baxter Howell.

This is the first of three Friday the 13th's of 2015.
