    Witnesses to what? Officiating what?


    No ceremony need be performed.
    On this, for the most part, you would be wrong. There might be a required form, but there's a requirement for a ceremony. See my questions immediately above.

    No vows are EVER necessary.
    I never said they were -- but in most ceremonies, including civil ones, they're usually done.

    Don't need that to get divorced. Just gotta say you want to get divorced.
    And we go around in a circle.

    I can't believe that our country has the most people imprisoned per capita and we are looking for ways to jail more.

    In the business context, judges can do that because it's simple to calculate damages. In the relationship context, it's literally impossible.

    If I sign a contract to split half of the profits of a sale of widgets with you and then break the contract, you can sue me for half the profits.

    If I sign a contract to be your friend in consideration for you being mine, and then act like a jerk, you can't sue me for half the value of my friendship.

    As for this being contrary to public policy, that a moot point in that this whole question is predicated upon the adoption of this measure being viewed by the public as something that does further the public interest.
    Ok.

    CA had the first no-fault law (of course), but not sure if it was in Reagan's time or not.

    On this fine point I don't disagree, however marriage is more than just companionship. It usually involves the parties making personal and financial sacrifices for the benefit of their union. A wife who abandons her schooling or career in order to move to another location can point to specific sacrifices she made based on the promises made involving their marriage. She can therefore also point to specific damages that resulted from the violation of the marital contract in that she wouldn't have made those sacrifices if she were not married.

    Should adultery be a criminal offense punishable by jailtime?
    Half of American couples would be in jail right now. This is the dumbest thing ever.
