Any social and religious aspects of marriage is between you, your partner, family and the religion of your choice.. nothing more, nothing less.

If that is not the case (i.e. if you have religious plurality) then I cannot fathom how religion and moral order could intersect at any fundamental level.
Now in the past it was a purely religious and moral event, but now days in the 21st century it has been broken down into legal technicalities that makes married folk different than non married folk living together. And that is why denying homosexuals the "bliss" of marriage is wrong... in fact denying these rights to people who dont want to get married but live in a loving relationship is wrong, but that is how our tax and legal system has been influenced by religious dogma and open discrimination.

As PeteEU said, marriage is a legal institution. The definition of marriage as a union between man and woman is a religious definition only.
