1. About two years ago I watched a symposium on UCTV
and was astonished to find out that there was little interest by the state (any state) in becoming involved in the marriage business until 1865. 1865, you ask? Why 1865? Well in just happened that the civil war had just ended and ..........
So marriage laws date from a time when there was a need to out some good strong bigotry on the books. So good to see it has not changed one bit, huh?
