Marriage: Not Just For Married Couples Anymore

This column makes a startling amount of sense, although it does make a lot of marriage rights subject to some complicated case law. It also makes alimony and child support a little bit more challenging to dole out. But the basic idea is a good one.

Funny, though, how the people who would yell loudest about a privatization of marriage are often the same people who tell us how privatization of Social Security, health care, etc. is a good thing...

Yeah, that's pretty much what every sane person has been saying since gay marriage even became a topic of debate.
