“He who finds a wife, findeth a good thing” Proverbs 18:22 ~
What they don’t tell you is, once you sign them papers, you undeniably NOW belong to(property of) that State. And once you produce children (bearable fruit) they undoubtedly belong to the State as well. (Term to research Parens Patriae)
A marriage license is but a business contract 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.” In essence you’re asking a State for permission to love someone & giving them whole-heartedly, ownership over yourself and your children.
Once a “marriage” reaches the point of divorce (dissolution of marriage) you aren’t simply done with the State, it just means the relationship with THEM has changed and now the two people are dealt with separately. “Amendment of the terms & conditions of the contract”. 🤔 How can ANYONE attach a fee to you deciding to love someone forever and spending the rest of your life with them?
