Love or Loyalty

I've been wanting to do a comic about this for a while but wasn't sure how to make it into a comic, so I decided just to have Brother America explain the law (well the bare basics) and for Sister America to get mad about it, cause really it was a dumb law

here more about it,if%20he%20opted%20not%20to.&text=And%20if%20she%20lived%20on,she%20could%20lose%20her%20citizenship.

and full law here

but lucky for Sister America when she and all other American women did get the right to vote the law was repealed with Cable act of 1922

it took her 15 years but she did it

A myth in Germany states that "German almost became official language of the USA". Actually there was a petition on having the laws written in German beside English, which was rejected by 1 vote.

Ouch that was nasty. Unfortunately possibly too common a viewpoint at the time. Bloody stupid as well as unfair as you might get some American women reacting by deciding if the US doesn't want us we're off.

There’s one that happened: Grace Kelly in 1956 to Monegasque citizenship

Sadly, at the time a married woman was only barely considered a person in her own right. Just an extension of her husband. It had been a long fight at that point to even get legal acknowledgement that a married woman could own property (even that left to her by her family), and the right to sell it without her husband's approval would take even longer.

ugh I wish I could fix this because I just notice a typo I wrote "should not her have" when I should have wrote "should not have her" ugh :angry: well maybe Sister America was just so angry she got her words mixed up

it wasn't until the 1940s until this law was completely repealed and American women can marry foreign men without worrying about losing her citizenship

to be honest, knowing Sister America (and all American women) had to put up with stupid laws might be why she's so supportive and outspoken about same-sex marriages besides liking yaoi

god I wish we could edit our fanarts
