A bill designed to prevent marriage fraud earned final approval from lawmakers in Louisiana on Wednesday. The bill would require a birth certificate, valid international ID, or passport for a person to receive a marriage license. The bill would also reportedly require that couples say, under oath, that they did not lie on marriage paperwork.
Opponents of the bill suggest that this is a restraint on marriage, where well-intentioned undocumented individuals and even American citizens who do not have the necessary paperwork, cannot marry their significant other.
