    Somehow I think 4chan actually would solve this whole issue better and faster than the general public.

    hahahaha, yeah. The general public will have to get a dog...and curtains.


    Though if the Scientology fiasco was any indicator, then I doubt they could do too much unless it really caught on with EVERY /b/tard.

    A marriage that wantonly defies these tenets -- one where one or both people are continually sleeping around -- does more to harm the insitution of marriage than divorce, as it makes a mockery of what is 'sacred' about marriage.

    That's one way to distill that particular example for the argument, yes.

    They are legally and financially associated with one another.

    Well, you have to remember that a marriage contract gives you rights that singles do not have, many of them financially related and many legal. That in itself is consideration to the two non-state parties.
    What's the consideration for the state?

    Only if they wish to do so by choice. One can file separately despite being married. Furthermore, one can legally separate financial rights and obligations. It's not that hard, but may be expensive depending on how many and how complicated. What marriage allows you to do is take advantage of financial and legal benefits. No one says you have to.

    What's the consideration for the state?
    Depends who you ask. Some consider the promotion of stable family structures as a foundation for society consideration as the state in theory requires it.

    Marriage in terms of licensing is a legal contract. If both parties agree to break the contract then the State would have no justification in stopping them.

    The state is the issuing authority of and a signing party in that contract.

    The state therefore has just as much right as you or your spouse.

    I wonder what banning divorce would do to the murder rate?.....
