Marriage License Truth – Licensed Wedding Copyright of The Government

Marriage License


When it comes to marriage in the United States of America, there are procedures and standards for marriage that one must follow, in which one of those procedures is to acquire a marriage license. Many people go about following the steps outlined for marriage according to the State, without ever knowing the reasoning or history or legal aspect of what they are doing. The word license is derived from the Latin word Licentious, which means lacking restraint, ignoring societal standards, disregard for accepted rules. According to Black’s Law Dictionary, the word license is defined as – the permission by competent authority to do an act which without such permission, would be illegal.” Now in other words, this means the government makes something that was lawful to do, illegal, so they can then tell you that if you pay the government money (which is a bribe), then they will turn their backs and give you a permit that allows you to break the law that they just said was illegal to do! So the question that people need to ask themselves, is why would it be illegal to marry without the State’s permission? This question is rarely brought up or addressed because people have grown so custom, to following the laws and statutes and commandments of man, rather than those of the Most High. Let’s examine the history of marriage license in America, and see how it came about, why it came about, and why the government and states enforce this system of enslavement upon the people.


History of Miscegenation Laws


Miscegenation laws, were laws that banned interracial marriage and sometimes interracial sex between whites and blacks. In the United States, interracial marriage, cohabitation and sex have since 1863 been termed as “miscegenation. In North America, laws against interracial marriage and interracial sex existed and were enforced in the Thirteen Colonies from the late seventeenth century onwards, and subsequently in several US states and US territories until 1967. In the United States, miscegenation laws were state laws passed by individual states to prohibit miscegenation, nowadays more commonly referred to as interracial marriage and interracial sex. Typically defining miscegenation as a felony, yes, felony, and these laws prohibited the solemnization of weddings between persons of different races and prohibited the officiating of such ceremonies.


The word fornication in the year of 1303, was defined as a sexual act committed with a prostitute. The Latin word fornix, from which fornicātiō, the ancestor of fornication, is derived, meant “a vault, an arch, it was referred to a vaulted cellar or similar place where prostitutes plied their trade, thus making it in reference to a sexual act committed with a prostitute, in which the bible refers to as a harlot, in which a harlot is a woman who engages in sexual intercourse for money. So upon the States knowing that blacks and whites would still be tempted to marry, instead of sticking them with just a felony charge, they redefined the definition of fornication, and begin using it when blacks and whites desired to marry one another, or have sex with each other, thus therefore making a lawful act, linked with a unlawful biblical act, therefore bringing condemnation upon two people coming together as a sin, and illegal. So with the majority of states being racist states and being owners of slaves, this word fornication was then instituted by scholars into the Holy Bible, thus giving it the meaning or definition as – “a sexual act when occurring outside of a marriage, such as any person who had sex without being married by the church. So through hiding behind Christ, this racist idiotic doctrine was brought into practice, and with the new definition of the word fornication being instituted, it now gave the states a cover, to continue racism by bringing those of different races into court to be tried, for committing a felony act of fornication, thus labeling them as fornicators.


When the government needed finances, some states began allowing interracial marriages or miscegenation as long as those marrying received a license from the state. So in other words, they had to receive permission to do an act which without such permission would have been illegal. Remember, in Black’s Law Dictionary it points to this historical fact when it defines “marriage license” as, “A license or permission granted by public authority to persons who intend to intermarry.” “Intermarry” is defined in Black’s Law Dictionary as, “Miscegenation; mixed or interracial marriages.” Not long after these licenses were issued, some states began requiring all people who marry to obtain a marriage license, seeing that they could make a profit off of the Union of Marriage. So in 1923, the Federal Government established the Uniform Marriage and Marriage License Act (they later established the Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act). By 1929, every state in the Union had adopted marriage license laws, and by 1935, all states required licenses except Maryland, which soon followed shortly thereafter.


See what the people fail to realize with these procedures for marriage given by the Government unto States is that, when you marry with a marriage license, you grant the State jurisdiction over your marriage. When you marry with a marriage license, your marriage is a creature of the State, it is a corporation of the State, therefore, they have jurisdiction over your marriage including the fruit of your marriage, in which the fruit of your marriage is your children and every piece of property you own. When you marry with a marriage license, you are not just marrying your spouse, but you are also marrying the State. With This Ring I Thee Wed, is of the state and is found in most county courthouses in many States. That phrase was published by the State Bar Association. They don’t tell you that when you repeat your vows, you enter into a legal contract, in which there are three parties to that contract, with the first being you, the second being the person you are marrying, and the third being the State you marry in. See the State and the lawyers know that when you marry with a marriage license, you are not just marrying your spouse, you are marrying the State, thus giving undue jurisdiction to the State. The marriage license invades and removes the Most High given parental authority. When you read the Bible, you see that the Most High intended for children to have their father’s blessing regarding whom they married. Daughters were to be given in marriage by their fathers (Dt. 22:16; Ex. 22:17; I Cor. 7:38). Why do you think when couples get married today, the father is suppose to be present to walk his daughter down the aisle?


See man knows what the word of the Most High says, so he incorporates a little of it into his own agenda and personal desire, to give his method of marriage some credibility. It is a known fact that, there was no requirement to obtain a marriage license in colonial America, nor in the bible. When you read the laws of the colonies and then the states, you see only two requirements for marriage, with the first being that, you had to obtain your parents permission to marry, and second, you had to post public notice of the marriage 5-15 days before the ceremony. In the bible, the man had to obtain the father’s permission, abide with the father and do some work as payment for marrying his daughter, leave his father in laws house and prepare a place for his soon to be wife to live, and after a year, he would return and take unto him his wife, marriages were also put on public notice in advance. You won’t find nowhere in the bible where a man ever decided to take a wife, and had to go buy a engagement ring or wedding ring, nor will you find where a man had to acquire a marriage license, nor will you find where a man had to go before a preacher, or county clerk or sheriff or county judge just to be married, this Pagan doctrine was instituted by man, to replace the parental right of the Father, with the philosophy of man. Why do you think the man is sought after for child support and spouse support? The government knows how to break down a man, and replace him with Welfare and child support as being his children’s father, they do as Satan did with Eve and put the woman over the man, therefore crippling him not only financially, but spiritually, by putting him in a position as the weaker vessel and subject to the authority of his wife, that’s totally against the order of the Most High.


To further cement this doctrine of acquiring a license to marry, the Roman Catholic Church setup seminary schools, to also indoctrinate and empower those who desired to become preachers, the authority and permission to act as divine authority figures in regards to marriage. Most preachers who are under seminary delusion, have no idea that when they are marrying someone with a marriage license, they act as a agent of the State rather than a man of the Most High. Why, because they would have to sign the marriage license, and would have to mail it into the State, in which doing this is giving the State’s demand to usurp the place of the Most High and family regarding marriage, thus instituting into the Union of Marriage created by the Most High, it’s unbiblical and immoral laws to govern marriage. So the so called preacher of the Most High, is really committing treason against the Most High, by acting as an agent representing the laws and commandments of the State. A marriage license is a three-party contract between the man, woman, and the State known as an adhesion contract. An adhesion contract is one which is extremely one-sided, grossly favoring the State.


When a couple applies for a license from the State to marry, they are actually asking for permission to engage in the “unlawful” activity of marriage (License – a revocable permission to commit some act that would otherwise be unlawful – Black’s Law 7th ed). Why, because the State can regulate that which it licenses, by entering into a State-sanctioned franchise (marriage) as a married couple, a couple forfeits their rights to a private, sovereign marriage and any ownership control of their children or property; as a result of the marriage license. Child Protective Services receives its full power and authority to seize children via the marriage license under the ancient legal doctrine of parens patriae. When a State-licensed married couple has a child, the Birth Certificate is the document the State uses to claim ownership of the child under its marriage contract. State ownership remains as long as that child lives, even after the age of 21. If you have a birth certificate, the State owns you too. Couples married under a state-sanctioned marriage license also give up 1/3 of their property to the state. Should one person die, the government, through the inheritance tax, will demand the surviving party to “buy them out” – usually a 28- 35% tax.

Marriage License – The Institution of CPS (Child Protective Services)


Even though weddings are conducted in a church setting with a providential backdrop, when a couple acquires a marriage license to marry, almost all preachers who marry a couple who has marriage licenses, marry them by the authority vested in them by the State, not by the Most High as they loudly and lyingly proclaim. In 1923, the Supreme Court defined liberty as, among other things, “…the ability to freely marry, establish a home, and bring up children. Today, we need a license to do those “unlawful” acts. After all, that which the state licenses it can thereby regulate. The license is then converted into a certificate after the marriage takes place. Barron’s Banking Dictionary defines a certificate as – “a paper establishing an ownership claim.” -Barron’s Dictionary of Banking Terms, ©1990, Barron’s Educational Series, Inc. p. 114. One of the main reasons the marriage certificate changed its character was the fact that the Panic of 1907 had just taken place and Senator Nelson Aldrich had been appointed to head the National Monetary Commission to ensure such panics never took place again. Senator Aldrich’s plan was ultimately realized in the Federal Reserve System of debt-based money that Americans suffer under today. Because the money system proposed was debt-based, the state and federal governments needed to have certificated property that produced wealth that they could pledge as collateral for notes in the upcoming debt money system. In 1903 only a few states had adopted a marriage license scheme, yes scheme because that is what it is used for today.


“The origins of the doctrine parens patriae and the law can be traced to medieval and late medieval English chancery courts where it played an important roll in maintaining the structure of feudalism. The King had a royal prerogative to act as guardian to persons with legal disabilities such as infants, idiots, and lunatics. Chancery, as an agent of the monarch, had a duty to maintain the orderly transfer of feudal duties from one generation to another and to insure that there would be someone available to perform these duties and the concept of parens patriae was usually invoked in connection with problems of property or guardianship.” In today’s world, the Department of Human Services functions as the Chancery, or agent of the monarch – which is the State – in orderly transferring the feudal duties of labor to generate a tax base on to future generations. That tax base is known as the “full faith and credit” of the American people and is pledged against every bond (a state bond issue is a loan) the people vote to approve. Birth certificates, marriage certificates, and automobile Certificates of Title are just some of the commercial paper the State government uses to collateralize their debt to the banks for all of the bond issues the people vote for. These certificates are serial numbered so the banks can more easily track them and all conform to the rules of negotiable instruments as outlined in the Uniform Commercial Code. You and your family have, in effect, been pledged as chattel to the banks for the State’s and Federal Government’s debts. (See also my link on Birth Certificates Truth)


Marriage License – The Institution of CPS (Child Protective Services)


YOU are the one who gave Child Protective Services permission to steal your children. Since the State can regulate that which it licenses, Child Protective Services has blossomed into a money making machine by snatching kids and receiving millions of federal dollars for them. In most cases, Child Protective Services has no interest in reuniting families because by keeping the family unit off balance, under constant worry and financial drain, the people of a state are more easily controlled, taxed and herded like sheep by the governmental power. A State which has strong, responsible families with good morals, an understanding of right and wrong, and the time to focus on solutions to state abuses would never be able to get away with the massive confiscatory taxation and licensing schemes the government, as well as all states, enjoys perpetrating against its citizenry today. Child Protective services receives its authority to kidnap children from the child’s parents the moment a marriage license was applied for and granted. The child is placed in a guardian/ward relationship with the state where the parents function merely as “custodians.” That custodial relationship may be terminated by the authorizing state agency whenever it declares the child is not being raised according to the standards established by the State, yes State!


So the States can sue the parents on behalf of the child, based on the State’s Rule of Civil Procedures, which states such as the one for the State of Maine, which states – “An executor, administrator, guardian, bailee, trustee of an express trust, a party with whom or in whose name a contract has been made for the benefit of another, or a party authorized by statute may sue in that person’s own name without joining the party for whose benefit the action is brought.” So, Maine can sue on behalf of the child without using the child’s name because you, the parents, gave the state guardianship over your child with the marriage license making the State a “trustee of an express trust”. America never had a Child Protective Services protecting our Children for at least the first 140 years of her existence, because assault on a child was already illegal and dealt with by the County Sheriff. If a child needed to be removed to a safer environment, he was brought to one of many privately funded homes which had to compete for money from the private sector. This competition forced the homes to maintain extremely high standards and, due to the limitation of funds, resolving family problems and reuniting the child with his family was of primary importance – unlike today’s State-administered system of bureaucratic red tape, and drugging programs that will damage a child for the rest of his or her life and ultimately alienate him from his family.


Marriage License – Conclusion


The phrase the government uses, “In God We Trust”, is a bold face lie, because the government is against everything the Most High stands for. So your trust and hope must be in the Most High and his laws and statutes and commandments, rather than in some governmental body.


So when the standards and procedures of the United States of America are not in compliance with those of the Most High, then as followers of the Most High this is what you must do.
