    It's not illegal to drive without a drivers license on private property.

    Sex is implied.

    Even if we were to make such a law today, in the age of Eminem, Miley Cyrus and Ke$ha, we wouldn't use the word sex on a legal document. A marriage license is a license to have sex. Here's another news flash for everybody. A marriage license isn't a legal binding document until the marriage is consummated.

    Don't get all pissy with me. These laws aren't enforced. I do understand why many people are unaware of the purpose of a marriage license. The intention has always been to grant permission to individuals to engage in sex. This was the case even when marriages were still granted by churches instead of the state.

    The first marriage license was issued in Shawnee, Kansas to John D. Skidmore and Arabella Z. Rice. Their marriage was performed on February 24, 1856 and the first marriage license was recorded on April 18, 1856.

    Am marriage license is not a license to have sex. It's a license to have the state recognize to people as one body when it comes to legal and finical affairs.

    People need a license to drive, hunt, fish, etc and society is inundated with government regulations as it is, and yet people can breed freely without regard for their ability to provide for their children and regardless of genetic health. Personally, I think it would be disastrous to give the government control over reproduction, especially considering the lousy job it does with everything else. And yet, it is illogical for unhealthy and/or poverty stricken people to breed.
    I voted no. Generally in our history as a species Eugenics does not bring any good.

    Please show me any statute, federal or state, that prohibits anyone from sex based on whether or not they are married.

    My heart says yes... though not everybody that is smart or well off is a good parent either. I think MANDATORY parenting classes with a passing grade should be a prerequisite and those that don't pass and have kids should face a consequence like community service and more parenting classes. When we got divorced we were forced into a parenting class though we are really good parents. I could not believe how ignorant most were in the class about the most basic of parenting. It was really alarming, to be honest.

    That's not what I asked. I asked you to show me a statue from any state or from federal law that links marriage licenses with sexual activity. You claim that they are linked. I'm asking you to show me the law that says this.
