Excellent, MichiMac!


Thanks for forwarding it.


We should add that the divorce rate across the ENTIRE country increased one hundred fold since the state started issuing these ´┐Żlicenses´┐Ż, something that never happened in any other Christian, Muslim, or Buddhist nation.

Subject: Fw: A Court Clerk Explains Why You Should NOT Get Marriage License







To All:

Here's some interesting information that you probably don't know about, unless you have a child that is in the Hospital who has Cancer and you don't want them to give them Chemo. The State steps in through the courts and takes the child away from you and gives them the Chemo and they almost always die. Or they say you are a bad Parent and take them away for what ever they decide your problem is and you are helpless to defend the situation. We have all read these stories and what you will see below explains how and why this can happen to anyone who gets caught up in the States web!

Hi Barbara

A Court Clerk Explains Why You Should NOT Get Marriage License

Virgil Cooper's story reveals the truth on Marriage Licenses and their real legal effects:

"About 15 years ago, my former wife of 26-1/2 years, filed for divorce.
We had seven children.

I prepared a counterclaim to the Petition for Dissolution her attorney filed in Domestic Relations court.
I met one afternoon with the head of the Maricopa County Superior Court, Marriage License Bureau, in downtown Phoenix.

The marriage license bureau was headed by a young woman of about age 25.
I asked her to explain to me the general and statutory implications of the marriage license.
She was very cooperative, and called in an Assistant, a tall Black man who at the time was working on an Operations Manual for internal departmental use.

She deferred for most technical explanations to her Assistant.
He walked through the technicalities of the marriage license as it operates in Arizona.

He mentioned that marriage licensing is pretty much the same in the other states -- but there are differences.
One significant difference he mentioned was that Arizona is one of eight western states that are Community Property states.
The other states are Common Law states, including Utah, with the exception of Lousiana which is a Napoleonic Code state.

He then explained some of the technicalities of the marriage license.
He said, first of all, the marriage license is Secular Contract between 3 parties:

bullet the State,
bullet the man,
bullet and the wife.

The State is the principal party in that Secular Contract.
The husband and wife are secondary or inferior parties.
The Secular Contract is a three-way contract between the State, as Principal, and the husband and wife as the other two legs of the Contract.

The Clerk said, in the "traditional" sense a marriage is a covenant between the husband and wife and God.
But in the Secular Contract with the state, the reference to God is not officially considered included in the Secular Contract at all.
The Clerk said, if the husband and wife wish to include God as a party in their marriage, that is a "dotted line" the spouses will have to add in their own minds.
The state's marriage license is "strictly secular," the Clerk said.

The Clerk said further, that what he meant by the relationship to God being a "dotted line" meant that the State regards any mention of God as irrelevant, even meaningless.

In the clerk's description of the marriage license contract, he related one other "dotted line."

He said in the traditional religious context, marriage was a covenant between the husband and wife and God with husband and wife joined as One.
This is not the case in the secular realm of the state's marriage license contract.
The State is the Principal or dominant party.
The husband and wife are merely contractually "joined" as business partners, not in any religious union.
The spouses are, the Clerk said, connected to each other by another "dotted line."

The picture the Clerk was trying to paint was that of a triangle with the State at the top and a solid line extending from the apex, the State, down the left side to the husband, and a separate solid line extending down the right side to the wife.
The dotted line between the husband and wife merely showing that they consider themselves to have entered into a religious union of some sort that is irrelevant to the State.

The Clerk further mentioned that this religious overtone is recognized by the State by requiring that the marriage must be solemnized either by a state official or by a minister of religion who has been deputized by the State to perform the marriage ceremony and make a return of the signed and executed marriage license to the State.

Again, the Clerk emphasized that marriage is a strictly secular relationship so far as the State is concerned and because it is looked upon as a "privileged business enterprise," various tax advantages and other political privileges have become attached to the marriage license contract that have nothing at all to do with marriage as a religious covenant or bond between God and a man and a woman.

By way of reference, if you would like to read a legal treatise on marriage, one of the best is Principles of Community Property, by William Defuniak.
At the outset, William explains that Community Property law descends from Roman Civil Law through the Spanish Codes, A.D. 600, written by the Spanish jurisconsults.

In the civil law, the marriage is considered to be a for-profit venture or profit-making venture (even though it may never actually produce a profit in operation) and as the wife goes out to the local market to purchase food stuffs and other supplies for the marriage household, she is replenishing the stocks of the business.

To restate:
In the civil law, the marriage is considered to be a business venture, that is, a for-profit business venture.
Moreover, as children come into the marriage household, the business venture is considered to have "borne fruit."

Now, back to the explanation by the Maricopa County Superior Court, Marriage Bureau's administrative Assistant.

He went on to explain that every contract must have consideration.
The State offers consideration in the form of the actual license itself -- the piece of paper, the Certificate of Marriage.
The other part of consideration by the State is "the privilege to be regulated by statute."

The Clerk added that this privilege to be regulated by statute includes all related statutes, and all court cases as they are ruled on by the courts, and all statutes and regulations into the future in the years following the commencement of the marriage.

The Clerk said in a way the marriage license contract is a dynamic or flexible, ever-changing contract as time goes along -- even though the husband and wife didn't realize that.
The rules that govern the "marriage" may be changed by the state at any time.

(note: One might criticize this contract as flawed by failure by the State to make full disclosure of the terms and conditions.
A contract must be entered into knowingly, intelligently, intentionally, and with fully informed consent.
Otherwise, technically there is no contract.
On the other hand, ignorance is no excuse.
Also, the marriage license contract with the State is as a contract of adhesion, a contract between two disparate, unequal parties.
Again, a flawed contract.
However, no one is forced to obtain a marriage license.
And this essay shows, the court clerks are happy to spill the beans when asked.)

Such a contract with the State is said to be a "specific performance" contract as to the privileges, duties and responsibilities that attach.

Consideration on the part of the husband and wife is:

bullet the actual fee paid
bullet and the implied agreement to be subject to the state's statutes, rules, and regulations and all court cases ruled on related to marriage law, family law, children, and property.

The clerk emphasized that this contractual consideration by the bride and groom places them in a definite and defined-by-law position inferior and subject to the State.
The Clerk commented that very few people realize this.

The clerk also said that it is very important to understand that children born to the marriage are considered by law as "the contract bearing fruit" -- meaning the children primarily belong to the State, even though the law never comes out and says so in so many words, the judges and social workers act on the assumption that the state controls the children.

In this regard, children born to the contract are regarded as "the contract bearing fruit."
The clerk said it is vitally important for parents to understand two doctrines that became established in the United States during the 1930s:

bullet The first is the Doctrine of Parens Patriae.
bullet The second is the Doctrine of In Loco Parentis.

Parens Patriae means literally "the parent of the country" or to state it more bluntly -- the State is the undisclosed true parent.

Along this line, a 1930s Arizona Supreme Court case states that parents have no property right in their children, and have custody of their children during good behavior at the sufferance of the State.

This means that parents may raise their children and maintain custody of their children as long as they don't offend the State, but if they in some manner displease the State, the State can step in at any time and exercise its superior status and take custody and control of its children -- the parents are only conditional caretakers.

The clerk also added a few more technical details.
The marriage license is an ongoing contractual relationship with the State.
Technically, the marriage license is a business license allowing the husband and wife, in the name of the marriage, to enter into contracts with third parties and contract mortgages and debts.

They can get car loans, home mortgages, and installment debts in the name of the marriage because it is not only a secular enterprise, but it is looked upon by the State as a privileged business enterprise as well as a for-profit business enterprise.
The marriage contract acquires property throughout its existence and over time, it is hoped, increases in value.

Also, the marriage contract bears fruit by adding children.
If sometime later, the marriage fails, and a divorce results, the contract continues in existence.
The divorce is merely an amendment of the terms and conditions of the contract.

Jurisdiction of the State over the marriage, over the husband and wife, now separated, continues and continues over all aspects of the marriage, over marital property and over children brought into the marriage.
That is why family law and the Domestic Relations court calls "divorce" a dissolution of the marriage because the contract continues in operation but in amended or modified form.

The Clerk also pointed out that the marriage license contract is one of the strongest, most binding contractual relationships the State has on people.

At the end of our hour-long meeting, I somewhat humorously asked if other people had come in and asked the questions I was asking?
The Assistant replied that in the several years he had worked there, he was not aware of anyone else asking these questions.

He added that he was very glad to see someone interested in the legal implications of the marriage license and the contractual relationship it creates with the State.

His boss, the young woman Marriage Bureau department head stated,You have to understand that people who come in here to get a marriage license are in heat. The last thing they want to know is technical, legal and statutory implications of the marriage license.(Laughter)

I hope this is helpful information to anyone interested in getting more familiar with the contractual implications of the marriage license.

The marriage license as we know it didn't come into existence until after the Civil War (to make it legal for 'blacks' to marry 'whites') and didn't become standard practice in all the states until after 1900, becoming firmly established by 1920.
In effect, the states or governments appropriated or usurped control of marriages in secular form and in the process declared Common Law applicable to marriages "abrogated."

Please pass this information along and share it as widely as possible.

Best regards from Virgil Cooper

Marriage "License"


Here's the real and only marriage "license":

Exodus 22:1-7 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife. If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

     5 Reasons Why Christians Should Not Obtain a State     
                      Marriage License                      
                  by Pastor Matt Trewhella                  
       [Emphasis and Bible Verses Added by Webmaster]       
 Every year thousands of Christians amble down to their    
 local county courthouse and obtain a marriage license from
 the State in order to marry their future spouse. They do  
 this unquestioningly. They do it because their pastor has 
 told them to go get one, and besides, "everybody else gets
 one." This pamphlet attempts to answer the question - why 
 should we not get one?                                     
 1. The definition of a "license" demands that we not       
 obtain one to marry. Black's Law Dictionary defines        
 "license" as, "The permission by competent authority to do
 an act which without such permission, would be illegal."  
 We need to ask ourselves- why should it be illegal to     
 marry without the State's permission? More importantly,   
 why should we need the State's permission to participate  
 in something which God instituted (Gen. 2:18-24)? We       
 should not need the State's permission to marry nor should
 we grovel before state officials to seek it. What if you  
 apply and the State says "no"? You must understand that   
 the authority to license implies the power to prohibit. A 
 license by definition "confers a right" to do something.  
 The State cannot grant the right to marry. It is a         
 God-given right.                                           
 2. 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. What is the fruit of your marriage? Your
 children and every piece of property you own. There is    
 plenty of case law in American jurisprudence which         
 declares this to be true.                                  
 In 1993, parents were upset here in Wisconsin because a   
 test was being administered to their children in the       
 government schools which was very invasive of the family's
 privacy. When parents complained, they were shocked by the
 school bureaucrats who informed them that their children  
 were required to take the test by law and that they would 
 have to take the test because they (the government school)
 had jurisdiction over their children. When parents asked  
 the bureaucrats what gave them jurisdiction, the           
 bureaucrats answered, "your marriage license and their    
 birth certificates." Judicially, and in increasing         
 fashion, practically, your state marriage license has     
 far-reaching implications.                                 
 3. When you marry with a marriage license, you place       
 yourself under a body of law which is immoral. By          
 obtaining a marriage license, you place yourself under the
 jurisdiction of Family Court which is governed by          
 unbiblical and immoral laws. Under these laws, you can    
 divorce for any reason. Often, the courts side with the   
 spouse who is in rebellion to God, and castigates the     
 spouse who remains faithful by ordering him or her not to 
 speak about the Bible or other matters of faith when       
 present with the children.                                 
 As a minister, I cannot in good conscience perform a       
 marriage which would place people under this immoral body 
 of laws. I also cannot marry someone with a marriage       
 license because to do so I have to act as an agent of the 
 State!  I would have to sign the marriage license, and I  
 would have to mail it into the State. Given the State's   
 demand to usurp the place of God and family regarding     
 marriage, and given it's unbiblical, immoral laws to       
 govern marriage, it would be an act of treason for me to  
 do so.                                                     
 4. The marriage license invades and removes God-given     
 parental authority. When you read the Bible, you see that 
 God 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). We have a vestige of this in our culture today in  
 that the father takes his daughter to the front of the    
 altar and the minister asks, "Who gives this woman to be  
 married to this man?"                                      
 Historically, there was no requirement to obtain a         
 marriage license in colonial America. When you read the   
 laws of the colonies and then the states, you see only two
 requirements for marriage. First, 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         
 Notice you had to obtain your parents permission. Back    
 then you saw godly government displayed in that the State 
 recognized the parents authority by demanding that the    
 parents permission be obtained. Today, the                 
 all-encompassing ungodly State demands that their          
 permission be obtained to marry.                           
 By issuing marriage licenses, the State is saying, "You   
 don't need your parents permission, you need our           
 permission." If parents are opposed to their child's       
 marrying a certain person and refuse to give their         
 permission, the child can do an end run around the parents
 authority by obtaining the State's permission, and marry  
 anyway. This is an invasion and removal of God-given       
 parental authority by the State.                           
 5. When you marry with a marriage license, you are like a 
 polygamist. From the State's point of view, when you marry
 with a marriage license, you are not just marrying your   
 spouse, but you are also marrying the State.               
 The most blatant declaration of this fact that I have ever
 found is a brochure entitled "With This Ring I Thee Wed." 
 It is found in county courthouses across Ohio where people
 go to obtain their marriage licenses. It is published by  
 the Ohio State Bar Association. The opening paragraph     
 under the subtitle "Marriage Vows" states, "Actually, when
 you repeat your marriage vows you enter into a legal       
 contract. There are three parties to that contract. 1.You;
 2. Your husband or wife, as the case may be; and 3. the   
 State of Ohio."                                            
 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! You are like a         
 polygamist! You are not just making a vow to your spouse, 
 but you are making a vow to the State and your spouse.    
 You are also giving undue jurisdiction to the State.       
 When Does the State Have Jurisdiction Over a Marriage?    
 God intended the State to have jurisdiction over a         
 marriage for two reasons - 1). in the case of divorce, and
 2). when crimes are committed i.e., adultery, bigamy. etc.
 Unfortunately, the State now allows divorce for any        
 reason, and it does not prosecute for adultery.            
 In either case, divorce or crime, a marriage license is   
 not necessary for the courts to determine whether a        
 marriage existed or not. What is needed are witnesses.    
 This is why you have a best man and a maid of honor.  They
 should sign the marriage certificate in your family Bible,
 and the wedding day guest book should be kept.             
 Marriage was instituted by God, therefore it is a          
 God-given right. According to Scripture, it is to be       
 governed by the family, and the State only has             
 jurisdiction in the cases of divorce or crime.             
          History of Marriage Licenses in America          
 George Washington was married without a marriage license. 
 Abraham Lincoln was married without a marriage license.   
 So, how did we come to this place in America where         
 marriage licenses are issued?                              
 Historically, all the states in America had laws outlawing
 the marriage of blacks and whites. In the mid-1800's,     
 certain states began allowing interracial marriages or    
 miscegenation as long as those marrying received a license
 from the state. In other words they had to receive         
 permission to do an act which without such permission     
 would have been illegal.                                   
 Blacks Law Dictionary 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        
 Give the State an inch and they will take a 100 miles (or 
 as one elderly woman once said to me "10,000 miles.") Not 
 long after these licenses were issued, some states began  
 requiring all people who marry to obtain a marriage        
 license. 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.                                              
 What Should We Do?                                         
 Christian couples should not be marrying with State        
 marriage licenses, nor should ministers be marrying people
 with State marriage licenses. Some have said to me, "If   
 someone is married without a marriage license, then they  
 aren't really married." Given the fact that states may    
 soon legalize same-sex marriages, we need to ask           
 ourselves, "If a man and a man marry with a State marriage
 license, and a man and woman marry without a State         
 marriage license - who's really married? Is it the two men
 with a marriage license, or the man and woman without a   
 marriage license? In reality, this contention that people 
 are not really married unless they obtain a marriage       
 license simply reveals how Statist we are in our thinking.
 We need to think biblically.                               
 You should not have to obtain a license from the State to 
 marry someone anymore than you should have to obtain a    
 license from the State to be a parent, which some in       
 academic and legislative circles are currently pushing to 
 be made law.                                               
 When I marry a couple, I always buy them a Family Bible   
 which contains birth and death records, and a marriage    
 certificate. We record the marriage in the Family Bible.  
 What's recorded in a Family Bible will stand up as legal  
 evidence in any court of law in America. Both George       
 Washington and Abraham Lincoln were married without a     
 marriage license. They simply recorded their marriages in 
 their Family Bibles. So should we.                         
 (Pastor Trewhella has been marrying couples without        
 marriage licenses for ten years. Many other pastors also  
 refuse to marry couples with State marriage licenses.)    
 This pamphlet is not comprehensive in scope.  Rather, the 
 purpose of this pamphlet is to make you think and give you
 a starting point to do further study of your own. If you

     Genesis   2:18 - 24
      18. And YHWH God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone;
     I will make him an help meet for him. {meet...: Heb. as before him}
      19  And out of the ground YHWH God formed every beast of the field,

     and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place;
      22  And the rib, which YHWH God had taken from man, he made a woman,
     and brought her to the man. {made: Heb. built}
