Marriage is a strictly a secular relationship so far as the State is concerned. It is also fundamentally looked upon as a “privileged business enterprise”. This is  because various tax advantages and other so called political privileges have become attached to the marriage license or civil union certificate issued by the State. These privileges have nothing at all to do with the marriage as a private relationship between two people. They do however have everything to do with commerce. Commerce involving a State owned commodity, you. These privileges tendered to the marriage partners through the acceptance and use of a license or certificate end up allowing the State to control the marriage partners’ money, property and kids. When you break it down and completely understand what’s going on a State sponsored union is nothing more than a commercial enterprise managed by you but owned and controlled by the State.

 In the civil law, marriage is considered to be a for-profit business or a simple money making enterprise. Technically, the marriage license or civil union certificate is a business license allowing the marriage partners, by the authority of the State, to enter into contracts with third parties for credit, mortgages, and other debts. The marriage partners can, through the use of these third parties, obtain car loans, mortgages, and other installment debt in the name of the marriage because it is looked upon by the State as a privileged enterprise and a for profit business. The marriage contract acquires property throughout its existence and over time it is hoped that it will increase in value. Moreover, if children come into the marriage household by either birth or adoption, the business venture is considered to have “borne fruit.”; this “fruit” is again considered to be the property of the contract. Who controls the contract? It’s not you my friend.

Since the marriage license and civil union certificate are in fact contracts they must conform to the tenets of contract law. One of those tenets is that every contract must have consideration. Where is the State’s consideration in the marriage license? The State offers its consideration in two forms, one is the use of the license itself by a couple, and the other is that the license and its terms and conditions are to be regulated by the State’s courts and statutes. This so called “privilege” to be regulated by the State includes all statutes, acts, codes, and court cases concerning all matters related to the marriage enterprise. Consideration on the part of the marriage partners is the actual fee paid for the license and the couple’s implied acceptance of the State’s authority through statutes, acts, codes, and court cases related to marriage law, family law, children, divorce, and marital property.

Even though these conditions are never disclosed to the marriage partners the marriage contract is in fact a dynamic, flexible, ever-changing instrument. Once the contract is accepted and acted on by the marriage partners it forever places them in a legally defined position inferior to the States authority and control over all assets of the marriage.


It is very important to understand that children born to or adopted into the marriage are considered by law to be the fruit of the marriage contract. Or in simpler terms just another State owned asset. This means the children primarily belong to the State not the parents. This fact is of course never disclosed to the partners. As unbelievable as this seems it is absolutely true.

This fact is related to two doctrines that became established in the United States during the 1930s, the Doctrine of Parens Patriae and the Doctrine of In Loco Parentis. Parens Patriae means literally “the parent of the country” or to say it more plainly the State is the undisclosed true parent. This means that parents may raise their children and maintain custody of their children as long as they don’t offend the State. However,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. (Thus the Doctrine of In Loco Parentis. or “in the place of a parent”)

Have you ever wondered by what authority the State can step into a family situation and literally snatch the parent’s children away from them? Well its because of Parens Patriae and In Loco Parentis. If push comes to shove the State uses these two established doctrines to exercise its control.

Here is a link to just one of the news stories of the State snatching a child from its parents. Google it and you can find thousands more. Also notice that in this story and any other you locate there is not not one mention of the doctrines described above the State uses to exercise this sort of power and control over its citizens.

I know this sounds incredibly bizarre but it not only happens in the United States it happens in all western countries. Here’s a story from England.

Custody issues of children can be found in the family code of your state. Usually the State agency involved in child custody issues is Child Protective Services. Even though this is usually the case other agencies are becoming more involved most notably Hospitals.


 Another important consideration to understand in the State contract is the question what if it doesn’t work out? Remember when using that license the partners accepted the privilege of being regulated by State statute. To see how a dissolution of the marriage contract is handled all you have to do is go to your states Family Code online.

If you are getting a divorce and you read the family code in your State you will quickly realize you have got yourself into a real mess.  And of course there are attorneys to hire and depending on the assets to be divided and the kids, if any, this could get really expensive and emotionally draining in a hurry. Ask yourself this question, have you ever known anybody who went through a divorce where one or even both of the partners got cleaned out of almost everything they had?

Also notice that in this part of the code divorce is simply called  a “Dissolution”. What does that mean? The Code calls “divorce” a  dissolution because the marriage contract doesn’t end with the divorce it continues in operation but in amended or modified form. The “divorce” is merely a contractual dissolution or amendment of the terms and conditions of the contract you and you partner voluntarily entered into. Jurisdiction of the State over the marriage, marital property any children of the marriage and the marriage partners still continues.


These State unions bind you into a contract with the State that the State controls absolutely. Their contract and its legal effects are triggered by the acceptance and use of either a marriage license or civil union certificate. These documents are in reality not just contracts but what is technically termed public contracts. However there is another form of contract you can utilize to have a valid marriage or union without any of the negatives of the State’s public contract. This form of contract is called a private contract.

Contract law is a distinct and separate form of law recognized in all the courts of the United States and in all common law countries. Contract law, whether public or private, is primarily used in court to enforce the obligations of the contracting parties. What makes a contract public and another contract private are several things; one of the most important is what is called the venue and jurisdiction clause. In a State sanctioned marriage, the marriage partners’ cede jurisdiction to the State thus ceding control and jurisdiction of the contract to the State. This ceding is accomplished by the marriage partners’ unwitting use of the license or civil union certificate offered as consideration by the State. Once the partners cede jurisdiction to the State any and all marital issues that arise from the business enterprise are fought out in State court where you are obligated to hire lawyers and spend lots of money. State jurisdiction was accomplished by putting foreign or public law into your contract making what you thought was a private matter a public matter.

In a private contract, venue and jurisdiction is kept private between the parties to the contract. No foreign law, State statute, administrative or court rule is made a part of your contract; the State is kept out; therefore the venue and jurisdiction is kept private. There is a maxim of law that describes this, it is Le contrat fait la loi.” The contract makes the law. In other words the words in the document of your private contract are the law!
