Marriage was originally a religious construct, a sacrament. Why are people who don't follow a religious creed concerned in the slightest about marriage?

The tax code should be reformed to give no tax advantages to married couples. Then gay and straight couples would conclude, "Why are we getting married?"

Indeed, why are they?

Can you imagine what would happen if employers stopped providing health insurance to married employees' spouses (i.e. treated married people like single people)? Art and 2828 would have to get a job or else find affordable health insurance. <g>
