Marriage is legally only about property, citizenship, kinship and inheritance. The marriage license is an application for State and Federal benefits granted a specific class of people. All arguments about love, romance, reproduction, religious dogma, and tradition and family values are personal baggage and cultural ignorance of the legal fiction called marriage. Religion doesn’t own marriage. The State does it.
