    Rather than struggle with the issue of "Gay Marriage," why don't we consider the issue of the necessity for ANY "legal marriage."

    Let's consider our society without ANY legal marriage. Couples would, of course have children, and would be held responsible for them, no less than they are today. Wills would be written, etc.

    But there would be no legal mechanism for a "marriage" or "divorce."

    Would we notice?

    I been saying for years, the cure for this "problem" is the end of statutory marriages.

    But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    i picked the 2nd option although Im not truly sure either way.

    Im not a fan of marriage....putting a contract on something like love is always a bad idea IMO.

    The contract often outlasts the love.

    Why not just make marriage License's be required to be renewed just like every other license?

    Have learners permits as well?
