@miss narwhal:  Well I can take a guess — with a marriage license you can only hurt yourself but with a liquor license you are responsible for every single person you serve alcohol to.  If they’re underage, if they drive afterweard, if they destroy something at the venue in a drunken state, etc.  It’s a long shot, but it could come back on you!

Because you can get divorced, but you can’t un-burn down a building!

Because liquor licensing laws were born in an era when people were really puritanical and thought everyone who wanted a license was a giant sinner intent on corrupting the community. A lot of American laws are rooted in hyper-stringent morality; it’s just a lot more obvious with that demon alcohol than anywhere else.
