    Marriage is really just a fusion of sex and accounting, with some cleaning involved.

    This is known as love.

    The state starts this process because they know they may be called in to adjudicate, add up who will pay and who will clean up all the spilled love.

    Legally, actually, in most states, there is no contractual obligation to have sex with your wife at all past consumation.

    In louisiana, however - we have both a negative and a positive duty of fidelity - meaning not only are you not allowed to bone other people - but you are contractually obligated to provide the bone to your wife - and vice versa. The civil code does not actually state how often - and I'm not sure that anyone has actually sued for divorce and won on that, but technically, if your wife has held up every part of the marriage contract, but doesn't want to fuck - you can sue her for divorce.

    I assume any lawyer who defends a client in a Louisiana divorce case on the grounds of lack of sex will work..............pro bono.

    Why is government involved with marriage? Because, like most things the government is involved with, marriage is about money.

    Does government need be involved with marriage? Like most things the government is involved with, no.

    Marriage is a stabilizing institution. Without it, civilization becomes anarchy. See Uganda, Rwanda, and Detroit. Lol

    Who, other than the government enforces contracts? I'm not saying gay marriage is a bad idea. Quite the contrary. But your question is silly.
