What if the government says "No"?

When most people get married the couple purchases a marriage license and then normally ends up in front of a member of the clergy or a justice of the peace. On the surface a simple act, but only if you look at the surface.

What does this have to do with my utter fucking hatred dislike of government intrusion into our lives?

Why do people have to get the license? Honest question. Why? It doesn't mean they love each other more. It doesn't mean they will stay married forever. What it means is you get the governments permission to marry.

For me it is simple. The news is full of news of the hatred and anger about gay marriage and their "rights". Somehow I do not think marriage is a right. The modern system of marriage is not a right, it is a privilege, and now the gay community wants the privilege.

Why not get the government out of the love game?

You want to marry then you and your other, guy or gal, goes and gets it notarized by a notary public and that's it. WHAM! You're a couple.

I don't like the fact that the gov "ALLOWS" us to marry at their whim. Get the government out of the marriage game.
"But those bad bad gays will destroy the family"
How? Seems the society at large is doing that job very well without any help.

Solve the whole marriage issue in one swipe. Unregulate marriage.
