I have been married to my wife Marie for almost 10 years and I believe that marriage is a sacred institution. However, I do not believe that government should have any purview over a subject as sacred as marriage.
The state should not be in the business of defining a private contract, which is what a marriage is. Contracts should be left to the individuals that sign that contract to determine terms and conditions. The government's role should simply be to enforce those conditions.
I would be in favor of abolishing government marriage licenses because I don't believe that one should need paid permission from the state to marry.
