Warning Labels on Marriage Licenses

I would love Washington to put warning lables on marriage Licenses--all states, in fact. It is not mandatory to "Love and Honor" an asshole. If we knew in our hearts that marriage is not a license for one person to badly treat another, we would not so eaisly accept abuse. We might stick up for ourselves and demand respect. Here's what's happening in Washington according to This is True by Randy Cassinghom.

"The State of Washington wants to put warning labels on newlyweds. Not literally, but the state Senate passed a bill requiring that marriage licenses carry the disclaimer that “The laws of this state affirm your right to enter into marriage and at the same time to live within the marriage free from violence and abuse.” To become law, the bill must also pass the state House of Representatives, but it has no sponsor there. (AP) ...That’s because in Washington, a law doesn’t apply to someone unless you pass a law saying it does."

Any thoughts?
