That is not so. I never had to give blood or a birth certificate 50 some yrs ago when applied. My kids nor my grandkids have never given blood or shown a birth certificate in order to get married.
Maybe some state requires that but NON of the Western States do that I know of.
I find it ironic that the ONLY secrets the media seems to be able to keep, are those that involve the Mulatto Muslim Marxist and his Minions.....Anything else....they spill their guts faster than a gopher hit with a .22
