stay out of our personal business...
Just a contract
In a democracy, government has no right or business in the personal marriage business. Marriage is personal. All that should be required is a legal written contract.
Government should recognize, concur and help enforce the legal contracts regarding property rights, etc. Lawyers will enforce wills or trusts, so we need only lawyers, not government or any third parties. A legal written contract between lovers would suffice.
If I decided to marry a monkey and leave all my worldly goods to him or her, that’s my business, not a church’s or the government’s.
A new law on same-sex marriage passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor shouldn't be needed. It’s none of their business.
