    No, we knew the ramifications before marriage, but some women are just funny when it comes right down to it...

    Well I vote I don't care what they do as long as they stay out of my business, because that is truly how I feel. I don't care if the government recognizes marriage or not, and I don't care who gets married or who decides not to.

    And as long as the State is not involved, we're totally in agreement...

    How exactly does one go about defining a "compelling government interest"? I tried looking into it myself but there doesn't appear to be any sort of definitive answer to it nor even a principle behind it.

    That is an interesting question. Why would the State be involved otherwise?

    Well, the state kind of has to be involved. How else will you make sure that someone isn't marrying a minor or something like that? We need to have marriage licenses at least.

    Isn't that essentially what a marriage license is? It's just specific to marriage. At least that's what I always thought of a marriage license.

    The State already regulates deviant/immoral behavior through common law. Protection of minors would fall under that. You do not need the State sanctioning of marriage to protect children.

    How would they even know if people didn't have to have marriage licenses. Who would require proof of age and make sure it's legit?
