Millions of men, women and children have been robbed by state and federal governments. I am not referring to either taxes or inflation. I am referring to the government’s dereliction of one of its most basic duties: to enforce marriage contracts.

When a woman enters motherhood (Latin: “matrimony,” French: “marriage”), the physical, psychological and emotional demands of pregnancy and child rearing impact every area of her life. Marriage serves as a legal contract to guarantee her the support of the child’s father both during these affected years and beyond.
