I think she is getting things mixed up...it talks about the ability to marry so maybe age or other legal aspects...the discussion is pointless I have never heard that one needs to prove if married or not...not married means not married.

No it clearly says

legal capacity to enter into a marriage contract
which is among other things being unmarried or divorced.

In the case of the US, where a civil status registry does not exist, they put the responsibility on the person wishing to marry by making the person sign an affidavit attesting to their civil status. I let you research what legal implications signing an affidavit involves.

I don't seen how a country would know that one of it's citizens were going to get or had got married, abroad. If I apply for a newly issued copy of my original birth certificate, from my home country, that does not necessarily imply that I will use it to change my civil status.
A birth certificate certifies precisely that, a birth and does not attest to one's civil status.

To marry one needs to provide proof they are not already married (via a civil status document in some countries or a sworn affidavit in others). In requesting such document one will be asked why they need it. By replying 'preparation for marriage' the authority in question will request that the person update their civil status in their own registry (if it exists for that country).

All this to avoid legal marriages with multiple people in different countries.

I never informed the US when I got married, nor did I when I became widowed, thus they never had a clue either way.

And who gives a rat's ass about he US Department of State?

I got married in the US, and never signed any such thing.

Fine, but they would have been informed of the marriage via:



https://travel.state.gov/content/tra...ge-abroad.html
That is for marriages abroad.

I've never heard of any government (let's say, Switzerland) informing any other government (let's say the USA or the UK) that one of their (USA or UK) citizens had now married locally (in Switzerland).
In what world does an individual's lack of knowledge equal proof of inexistence?
