The TV outlet will be on hand July 10 at Cook County Marriage and Civil Union Court, 119 W. Randolph, and cover the $10 administrative fees for 70 couples marrying that day. It’s a first-come-first-served offer beginning at 9 a.m.

The stunt in Chicago and six other cities is meant to hype “Married at First Sight,” the reality show that starts its seventh season that night.
