IT IS TIME...

It is time to acknowledge that the time of marriage has passed. You can still do the trek up the aisle, 'til death do us part thing, but government will no longer intrude upon that relationship.

I totally agree. The government should stay out of religion (and vice-versa).

If people want to make their own personal commitments and get "married" in a church or on the beach or wherever, fine. But if they want legal recognition of their status, whatever that may mean, they need to execute a binding civil contract.

I think this arrangement would end a lot of silly contention, like the kerfluffle over same-sex marriage. If a church won't "marry" LGBT(or mixed-race) couples, they can take their business to a more congenial venue, and who cares?
