  No Covid test required  
  No mandatory quarantine  
  Proof of relationship     Apostilled marriage certificate  

My (now ) wife lives in Chicago and I live in Copenhagen. From when the pandemic started we were not married. I had travelled to the US via 15 day stay in Istanbul in August, and she had come directly to Copenhagen using the sweetheart exemption in September. However, we ultimately decided to get legally married so that I can come to the US directly as I pleased. She came to Denmark in November, and we got married and flew back to Chicago directly together the next day with no issues.
