For your own safety and sanity and for the well-being of your children, be sure to fill out the “Solemn Record and Proclamation of Lawful Marriage” and record it with the Land Recording Office nearest you. This is evidence that you are acting as living people getting married and not functioning as business entities engaged in a Joint Venture merger—- which is how your marriage will otherwise be “interpreted” by the existing court systems.
I will also point out that doing this prevents a lot of the other heartaches that can be associated with marriages — CPS, forced vaccinations, denial of home school rights, inequitable divorces, and a whole lot more can be settled privately and should be settled privately by arbitration. Just make sure to get your “Solemn Record and Proclamation of Lawful Marriage” properly witnessed and recorded and forestall any ability of the pirates to exercise their “discretion” with regard to what kind of marriage you have entered into.
Instructions for the Solemn Record and Proclamation of Marriage
1. You must remove all brackets from this document and fill in your specific information wherever you see red print.
2. If identity of a parent is truly unknown, just delete the space where their name would normally appear.
3. All names should appear in First Middle Last form, except in the last section where only the Bride’s and Groom’s First and Middle Names are used.
4. Days should be described as First, Second, 23rd, etc. Only the final “Date” should be in the “May 23, 2019” format.
5. The final section that the Justice of the Peace acting for the State or the Clergy Members use to affirm the marriage is an Official Witness added to the Lawful Witnesses.
6. Several original copies should be prepared all at once. The Witnesses sign in red ink with red right thumbprint seals, while the Officiant/Clergy sign in blue. Typically you will want at least six (6) copies — one for recording, two (one each) for the parents, two (one each) for the Bride and Groom, one for the Officiant.
7. If a Justice of the Peace officiates, the Marriage is under the Law of California, Law of Nevada, etc. If a member of the clergy officiates, the Marriage is under the Law of Scripture — whichever scripture applies. For all purposes international, the Marriage is under the Law of Nations as a Simple Treaty.
8. The Solemn Record and Proclamation of Marriage should be recorded in the local land recording office where it serves as permanent public notice; some people who can afford to do so take out ads in the local papers giving Notice of the Parties being married, time, place, day, etc.
9. It should be recorded under both the Bride’s Name and the Groom’s Name as a Joint Recording.
10. A Recording Cover Sheet should be added to provide space for the Recorder’s Office labels. The Grantors are the Parents. The Grantees are the Bride and Groom. The Recorded Copy should be returned to the newlyweds at their home address.
11. If an Annulment or Divorce occurs later in life, a Public Proclamation of Annulment or Public Proclamation of Divorce will need to be recorded as an “Extension” to the original recording of the Marriage.
