    It is, via the marriage license or the birth certificate or the adoption record.

    I have long questioned the need for the government to be involved in marriage at all. I would not object one bit if government were to step back and cease all involvement.

    However, having said that, doing for this particular reason is just silly pandering, considering all the other allegedly non-Holy scenarios that have come to be accepted.
