He didn't. That's the way it's worded. What you saw was a Marriage Bond not cert. When there was a dowery, the bride was given in exchange for money owed, taxes owed, a lien on property, loan repayment, etc. concerning the father's permission it was stated so there would be a public record of it. The license itself was only a couple of dollars. If you look a little longer you'll find the actual wedding cert. if they followed through & actual married.
