    The requirement is to make sure that none of the two parties are infected with a venereal disease.

    The main reason, that you are not blood related.

    Good question, I don't know.
    Not all states require a blood test for a marriage license. Texas is excluded.

    How can you tell she is voting down other peoples answers? I must be missing something because I thought I can only see the names of the people who vote me up or down and not when someone votes someone else up or down.

    Texas excludes themselves from everything!  I'm moving from CA to Texas.. LOL

    Too funny, Vinny.

    Not to start a war and not to hijack this thread but...  Does this law also pertain to lesbian and gay marriages?? I mean like obviously they can not have children so why would it mandatory??

    Good question.

    Blood tests used to be required to check for syphilis.

    to generate more money for the state
