-— Marriage will be a spiritual act when government stops granting it bennies -—
The government must play a role.in defining marriage, since it must arbitrate custody and property disputes.
The problem isn’t government regulation of marriage, per se, but the degradation of the laws regarding marriage, primarily the advent of no-fault divorce and the legalization of artificial means of induced sterility (”birth control”). The latter decoupled fecundity from marriage, thus removing a logical impediment to same-sex “marriage.”
