9. I was yelled at the same way for...

saying I'm not for marriage for everyone, but for no one.

Sounded like marriage equality to me-- no one gets married. Who could argue with that?

The state does not marry you, but certifies a contract or agreement between two people of any gender that takes care of all the legal ramifications marriage currently does. And personal or sexual relationships are not spelled out-- just the things like who can sign stuff at the hospital and who gets to decide if one dies intestate...

But, it seems that even while marriage is successful less than half the time, it is still a social or religious obligation that most people insist is necessary. For them, they can have a wedding at a religious institution, a secular wedding chapel, or any such place designated for such ceremonies that id not legally binding but socially important. Let it have the legal equivalent of First Communion or bar Mitzvah.

Marriage was instituted primarily to certify paternity a few thousand years before DNA analysis and grew from there. There is no good reason for it to exist in its present form today.
