Re: Alabama to eliminate marriage licenses (L)

I think 9 states plus D.C. still have common law marriage. When looking at the subject of marriage in getting government permission it shows how sheeple we are. Lead around like having a ring in our nose.

Are we seeing the beginning of states rights to counter the Feds?

If it is God's will for your illness then why are you seeking medical attention to get rid of it?

Re: Alabama to eliminate marriage licenses (L)

Christians should embrace "covenant marriages" and leave the decision of registering a marriage with the civil government to the couple.
Bad idea for ministers to sign marriage licenses, pastors insist

Re: Alabama to eliminate marriage licenses (L)

In my opinion, it would be best to allow "marriage" to be managed as a private contract as opposed to a civil contract with the state.

Re: Alabama to eliminate marriage licenses (L)

I have heard this before, but I don't understand how it would work? I know live-ins now who will not legally marry because they don't want their checks to be interrupted. This government which began as Christian needs to turn back to Christianity. I would do whatever I needed to stand for God's plan of marriage, but this is crazy to even have to consider. I think after homosexuality I think they should start letting them marry their animals and children. not really.

Re: Alabama to eliminate marriage licenses (L)

marriage is by definition dependent upon species, gender, and the number of parties. Once the gov't chooses to redefine marriage by undermining one of those 3 factors (gender), what's to stop them from easing the "restrictions" on the other 2?

You do realize that civil marriage and marriage licensing as we know it today didn't exist until the 1920's don't you???

Prior to the 1920's, marriage in the United States was a private arrangement under natural (or common) law... in all respects. It wasn't established, regulated, defined, or dissolved by government. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and many others never had a "marriage license" or a "civil marriage". In fact, for most, the marriage certificate provided by churches or signed by the couple in their family Bible was enough to establish a marriage if the courts were ever involved. Many divorces were handled through private arbitration.

Re: Alabama to eliminate marriage licenses (L)

If marriage is viewed as a contract, any two parties wishing to marry must be able to contract. An animal cannot contract.
