So it begins...

When every one decided to begin a paper trail with the French Government, there is always a back and forth.  You give them the papers that they ask for.  They ask you for papers that aren't on their official list.  You try to find these new papers and send them what they need, they decided that something was wrong with the first set of papers and need corrections.  You send them corrected paperwork.  Then there is a problem with the second set of papers...  And so on and so forth.

Here is their response to my paperwork:

Dear French-WantToBe:
We have received your paperwork.  Unfortunately we can't process your paperwork without the birth certificates of both of your parents and their marriage certificate.  Also your husbands birth certificate was older than 3 months old, and even though we didn't say that we needed his new birth certificate in our paper work, you should have known that you needed like everyone needs to carry a new electric bill around to prove that they live in France.  Also we will need 2 copies of your passport, information about your previous marriages and whether you have children, because while your sons names are in the copy of the 'livre de famillie' that you provided, I will need a separate paper with all of their information and probably blood so I can confirm, that they are in fact sons of France.
Cordially yours,
M. French Functionaire.
