Dog The Bounty Hunter is a married man, and the new couple now has official proof they are man and wife after receiving their state of Colorado marriage license.
Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman proudly showed off the marriage contract which was filed in El Paso County, Colorado. On the document, it reads “Daune Chapman of Castle Rock, Colorado and Frances France of Castle Rock, Colorado”– not that we expected it to say anything else.
“It’s official,” Dog captioned a picture of his new license.

As we reported, Dog and Francie tied the knot at ‘The Pinery at The Hill’ and shared several photographs of the big day with his millions of fans. “Yes, knot is tied!!” the reality star captioned the first photo released of their ceremony.
As you know, Dog and Francie met in his hometown in Colorado just six months after his new wife also lost her husband to cancer. The reality star was previously married to Beth Chapman for 13 years, who died of cancer in June of 2019. The two bonded over their tragic losses and even honored their late spouses in the ceremony.
“We have been doing that all along,” Francie told Entertainment Tonight. She continued, “We have done that privately, and in our vows, we will be honoring them. We honor them all of the time. And so we will continue to do that throughout their lives. Throughout our life together, we will continue to do that. They will be a part of that always.”

The best part, the newly married couple even picked their own favorite flavors to be included in the wedding cake. “So, he picked one part and I picked the other and we have several tiers of the cake and I don’t like his part and he doesn’t like mine,” she joked. Adding, “The reception is going to be a fun party and right after the wedding, it is all in one place. And we are going to be dancing and having a blast with all of our friends and our family and everybody that wants to share all of this with us.”
Unfortunately, the wedding came at a time where Dog was estranged from his two daughters — Bonnie and Cecily — after they claimed he dropped homophobic and racial slurs.
Chapman addressed the situation, saying he thought he had a pass to use the word after landing himself in prison in the 1970s and having fellow inmates who allowed it to be used.

“She’s been fed what to say,” Dog said about his daughter. “Would I die for a gay man or a Black man? I would lay down my life,” he insisted. Bonnie responded to the allegation, saying, “As far as the idea that I’m being brainwashed, this is the dumbest thing my father has ever said. I didn’t believe he would go this far to discredit me so much as to say I was brainwashed. I am concerned about him. He has begun to believe crazy conspiracy theories. The only credibility my dad has to speak about brainwashing is perhaps as a victim.”
In the end, neither daughter attended the wedding.
