Two of my favorite resources for finding marriage records:

(Washington State Digital Archives) www.digitalarchives.wa.gov<http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov>

* Under Detailed Search, select marriage records

(King County Recorder's Office) http://www.kingcounty.gov/business/Recorders/RecordsSearch.aspx

* Click "Records Search," Click "Accept," Click "Search" next to Marriage Records

And to find divorce records:
(Washington Courts) http://www.kingcounty.gov/business/Recorders/RecordsSearch.aspx

* Enter Full or Partial Last Name, and Full or Partial First Name (middle name is optional) of one of the persons in the marriage; enter security characters and click "submit."
* To find divorce records, look for a case where the person you searched for is listed as a "Respondent" or "Petitioner," and click on the hyperlink. Review record to see if there is a "Decree of Dissolution." If you find a record for one of the persons in the marriage, repeat the search for the second person in the marriage to ensure they have the same case number & divorce decree. If they don't, the divorce could be from a previous or former spouse.

Sorry I'm so late to chime in!
