7. Equal protection under the law is, however,
part of the Constitution. It's not so much about marriage, per se as about the over 1000 benefits extended by government to married couples. If marriage were not a government sponsored institution, there would be no issue of equality. Everyone could marry or not according to their own choice and religious traditions.
