In America, people with children are usually married — with a corporate state granted marriage license. Now, everybody knows that a license is “permission to do something that would otherwise be illegal”; and, Where Common Law or better yet, Natural Law marriages are lawfully recognized in every state, it is not otherwise illegal to be married without a license.
Do you remember how you first learned about common law marriages. I was walking to school with a friend. A new family had just moved into the neighborhood and my friend told me they had a common law marriage. I asked, “What’s that?” My friend said it meant they lived together in sin for over seven years, so now their marriage was legal. Most of us learned about marriage from parents, churches, or from school. But, did we learn the whole truth?
The truth is “common law” means the law that is common among the people. We can know what that is by looking at the court rulings among a people and common law is the way the courts rule on the cases before them. Thus another name for common law is standard case law. The seven year rule in common law is actually Biblical. It’s a property law called the “Law of Jubilee”, which says that every seven years (grand jubilee = 50 years) all debts are forgiven, and whatever has been called something for seven years, or more, is what it was called. Though a responsibility in marriage is proven by jubilee, that is not the only limit of natural law marriages. Natural law marriage is defined by “agreement” and “consent”. Jubilee proves the existence of both agreement and consent, because if no one contests the union within seven years jubilee says all contest rights are waived; therefore, any necessary consent was granted by tacit admission.
In a natural law marriage the “agreement” is between the spouses to be — they must agree to be married. “Consent” comes from the father of the bride. He must agree to give his daughter to the bridegroom. Under natural law, if a couple has both agreement and consent they are, by definition, married. That’s all there is to it. The moment agreement and consent are in place the bride and groom are married, and that marriage can lawfully be consummated. Marriages often result in the creation of children. Children are created “in the image of God.” Therefore, such a union is sacred and often tied to a great deal of ceremony, religion, pomp, and circumstance.
Whereas, “license” means, permission to do that which would otherwise be illegal’; and,
Whereas, it is not otherwise illegal to be married under the law; and,
Whereas, the only other reason it would be unlawful for two consenting adults to be married is if they were otherwise incompetent;
Therefore, if a couple goes to “the state” and asks the state for a license, where there is no other reason for them to need a license other than incompetence, in law, those requesting a license must be incompetent because that is the only reason they could possibly need a license.
Now, one must ask, “When a bride and groom are incompetent to be married without a state license and that state grants that license,
Who is responsible for the marriage?” Answer: The grantor, the state.
Who is responsible for anything created in such a licensed marriage? Answer: The grantor, the state.
And, what, typically, is the only thing “created” in such a marriage? Answer: Children.
So I ask you, “Who do the children created in a state licensed marriage belong to?” Answer: They belong to the state.
Believe it, or not. Just check out the evidence:
Evidence #1 — The state social services stand their authority on a doctrine called “Parens Patriae” which is Latin for “parent by the country”. In modern usage parens patriae is understood to mean “the state is the parent”.
Evidence #2 — When U.S. doctors deliver children from the womb they are required to create a document known as a: Record of Live Birth. Is it given to you? No. You’re given a: Birth Certificate. So, what happens to the Record of Live Birth? It’s sent to the, “BUREAU OF VITAL STATISTICS”. And, what is that? It is a sub department of the, “Department of Commerce”. And, what is the, “Department of Commerce”. It is where the U.S. keeps track of its possessions. This evidence indicates that the state is declaring the children as their possession at birth.
Evidence #3 — New statutes, policies and or procedures require hospitals to assign Social Security Numbers to each child before birth, with or without the natural parents signature or permission. (read “Independence Day” in this issue)
Evidence #4 — Why are each of the childbirth performing hospitals in the U.S. registered as “Ports of Entry” into the U.S. when virtually none of them have incoming foreigners?
Evidence #5 — Birth records and Census reports are used as collateral for U.S. loans and as proof of the subservient nature of the people under control of the U.S. government. It’s Scary. It’s proof of the war. It’s fulfillment of Biblical prophesy. And, if we don’t do something to change things we’ll have no promise from the King of Kings (other than judgment).
So what do we do? First we learn what happened. In times past, there were no licenses of marriage except in cases where it was unlawful to otherwise marry. For example, Biblical Law shows God sanctions marriage and forbids intermarriage of races. Therefore, the contract of marriage is traditionally bound by a religious ceremony provided by an official minister; and, the laws of the land forbade miscegenation. So, when a white person wanted to marry a black, if the state was willing on request, it would license miscegenation with a marriage license. Marriage records were kept in family Bibles, then with the advent of licenses, in the County Clerk and Recorder’s offices. Statutes were created to allow anyone desiring a license to obtain one. Churches were used to assist in getting people to use marriage licenses as a manner of recording marriages. Over time, people began to believe licenses were required by law, even though they were only required if you were otherwise incompetent to marry. Now, remember, the promise given to Israel was, if we maintain our stewardship, we’ll inherit the earth. Our stewardship starts with our families.
Isn’t it ironic that the document typically used to begin a marriage is the same document used by the corporate state to remove our children from us?
And, nobody ever even warned us, because government employees were just doing their jobs. Whenever we discover we’ve erred, we can repent. The error was asking the state for a marriage license. Repenting includes fixing the damage. Some people would tell you, ‘To remove the marriage license you have to revoke or rescind your signature from the request for the license.’ However, as a matter of law, revoking or rescinding a signature admits you signed it in the first place. What if you never signed the request for license? Then there would be no license in existence. In contract law there is no signature if full disclosure is not given with presentment of the agreement.
In the case of most marriage licenses, the state does not inform:
- The grantor of the license is a privately owned corporation;
- Licensing with them wasn’t necessary for the marriage;
- Requesting a license constitutes a declaration of incompetence; and,
- Signing such a license admits the state is the responsible parent of your future children, and will be used by them as state collateral.
Therefore, if any of the above points are true in your case, then the contracting license is void and without a lawful signature, from the beginning.
So what about your marriage? Legal & Lawful Marriage? Well think about it. If the two of you went to get a “required” license, you must have had agreement. And, if you had her father’s blessing you had his consent and therefore under Natural Law (Biblical Law) you were married without the license before the license was issued.
The churches rightfully want people to have “legal and lawful” marriages.
A natural law marriage is a “lawful” marriage, meaning it fulfills law. The accent in the lawful marriage is the fact that the parties of the marriage have an agreement, they have the fathers consent and they are bound by their acceptance of, and consummation of, the marriage.
A “legal” marriage indicates a written contract of marriage. The written legal record for a legal marriage evidences the authority the marriage was bound by.
All you have to do to make a lawful natural law marriage “legal and lawful” is, make a legal record of the union made under natural law. In other words, if you legally record your contract of marriage with the County Clerk and Recorder. Such a record is a legal record and the natural law marriage is both a lawful fact and a matter of legal record; thus, “legal and lawful”. Even if your original marriage agreement was verbal, you can later legally reduce it to writing and make it binding from the first moment of your agreement and consent by making your contract “nunc pro tunc”, which means, “now as if then”.
Knowing these things prior to marriage brings on some interesting questions especially if you or the father of the bride have religious beliefs (like I do) that cause you to desire to go through an ecclesiastic leader that may be unaware of the truth and therefore believes you have to have a state issued marriage license. The solution is simple. If it was me, I would obey the law. With agreement and consent, I would:
1/ create a Notice of Marriage stating: I and my spouse to be have an agreement to marry,
2/ show we have consent of the bride’s father, and,
3/ give notice of the intended ceremony which when performed will bind, seal and/or begin the Marriage union.
4/I would have all related parties sign the document.
5/ I would then go to the County Clerk and Recorder’s office and legally record the Notice with the marriage licenses.
6/ I would then get a couple of state certified copies of the Notice.
7/ I would take a state certified copy to the ecclesiastic leader as evidence of the legal right to lawfully marry.
In Law your Notice has a greater authority than the state issued marriage license. The authority you will be using is the authority of natural law in original jurisdiction, as was endowed upon man by birth.
It is the same authority and power that makes you sovereign. It follows law. The Notice is in accord with the laws of the individual states and is binding.
Taking your Family back
This problem started many years ago. It won’t be removed overnight. The state took charge of our stewardships because we signed the agreement and or allowed it. People are a great source of wealth. If the state can convince you that you are under their control, as their asset or subject, then you won’t control them.
We are living with alleged contractual bonds to parens patria, and we have been doing so in condemnation for at least three generations. It’s time we recognized the truth. It’s time to take responsibility for our families, our stewardships and our lives. Removing the marriage license won’t remove the entire problem in and of itself. It will, however, remove the foundation upon which the state builds its entire “parens patria” doctrine. With the state’s foundation removed you’ve taken the
first step to prepare for any battle that may come up where the state attempts to use social workers, or other forces, to interfere with your family rights. You’ll be beginning to act like the sovereign you are. If your marriage is not made under their authority, they have no lawful right to interfere with your family unless you invite them to.
Step two: Stop inviting them to solve your family problems. Be self reliant. It doesn’t mean they won’t ever interfere. It does mean that if they do you’ve disarmed their #1 weapon from their presumption. You’ll need to learn more and to prepare to turn back any attack they bring against you, but foundationally you’ll be ready. Even after we resolve our marriages, the problem is, the system that set up the parens patria system of control still exists and government officials still want us to believe we are their incompetent servants. We need to solve that problem by eliminating the incompetence; thus, Step three: You’re sovereign and therefore you’re responsible, so start acting like it.
Learn the Law — Obey and apply it, and when others trespass against you or yours, mercifully and justly hold them accountable to their trespasses. Accountability is the key. If you’ll do it you’ll be well on the path to true freedom and liberty, and we’ll get our nation back. Team Law can help. That’s why we’re here, to help people wake up and learn the law. Re-tie Family Ties Typically for about the same reasons we had the marriage license problem we have the problem of raising our children in that same system that taught us we needed to have the marriage license.
That system wanted us to be incompetent workers providing all of the “government’s needs”, believing the “government” was supposed to provide our needs. When in reality we are responsible for providing all of our own needs and government’s responsibility is to govern itself and help us maintain our rights and property, without trespass.
The question is, “What are we allowing that system to teach our children?” Perhaps the question should be, “Why are we allowing that system to teach our children?” You don’t have to take your children out of the public school system. Though many have, successfully. However, if your children remain in the public school system, you must take an active part. At the very least pay attention to what your children are learning. I’m not referring to the school’s alleged subject matter, I’m referring to the public school’s end results: drugs, immorality, codependency and crime. You decide what’s best for your children. After all, ultimately, when it comes time for you to stand accountable for your stewardship, you won’t be able to blame the school for the outcome. After all, you are the sovereign.
