If there were no marriage benefits?
Would gays still want to get married?
If it snot about the benefits what s wrong with a civil union OR having a ceremony?

Marriage began as a religious sacrament. Where the government went wrong was in adopting the word marriage for the license. I would propose that all couples receive a "certificate of civil union." If they are to be married, then that will be performed by their church and the church can issue a marriage certificate if they wish to. As far as the state is concerned, the couples are all equal under the law and can have any ceremony they want, performed by a person legally eligible to join them either through a civil or religious ceremony.

Straight People don't get married based on tax break, sure they are a perk, however if that was the case there wouldn't be a single person on earth. People get married out of love, it is the ultimate sign of commitment, trust, and love to pledge the rest of your life to somebody else.

It has nothing to do with marriage benefits. If you fall in love with someone, wouldn't you want to marry them?
