    We don't need legal binding contracts over marriage. Marriage rituals are between the two people & their gods. And as you can see, the taxpayers are stuck with the bills of this foolishness.

    The taxpayer-borne social costs of family fragmentation exceeds $112 billion per year, especially when all costs to the justice system are recognized.

    (6 Scafidi, Benjamin, The Taxpayer Costs of Divorce and Unwed Childbearing (New York; Institute for American Values, 2008, ISBN: 1-931764-14-X), Appendix A, pp. 22-30.)
