  • Fishing licenses to make money. Drivers licenses to make money and to make sure the roads are safe from people who shouldn't be on the road, and also since people use their picture licenses as ID to keep the picture current. Not marriage licenses because they want people to stay married, I guess. LOL!

  • DH pointed out that in some states, including ours, you can buy a lifetime fishing license. But I see your point.

    My question is this, you have to get a license for those things, and for driving you usually have to take schooling for it. But just anybody can get knocked up and have a baby, despite having a clue as to what you're doing? Is it just me? Or is that sort of screwed up? lol

    Can't you just see the uproar if somebody tried to pass a law that people would have to apply for a license to have a baby? lmao

  • Because you vow to stay married until death you do part. Your marriage license is good until that time.

  • Because they want to make MONEY!!! Fishing and drivers license renewals happen so often because they want you to give them your money!!!!
