    So, you're partly correct.
    The marriage license prior to the Civil War was not manditory. Common Law marriage was by and far well more approved and accepted. Colorado still has common law marriage which doesn't require a Marriage License, but I don't know how many States still recognize it. With the end of the Civil War can the requirement of inter-racial couples to obtain a Marriage License, common law marriage was not recognized for them. And the State did this in order to prevent inter-racial marriage.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
