Should government start adopting measures to encourage people to get married?Maybe. Where's the gain? It's a legal contract that simplifies some things (inheritance, power of attorney, etc). The other stuff you mentioned is public health and safety. Seems a bit different to me.The other thing is that it takes TWO. Quitting smoking, exercising, wearing a helmet...that is all YOU. One person changing their behavior for their benefit (and to some extent that of society due to costs of not doing these things).My first reaction is simply that it's a contract, and there's no reason for government to get in the middle of that in any way (other than filing/registering the contract, of course).1poorguy
