I'm curious. When I attended a family law class, the teacher, a local family law attorney, remarked, "People think marriage is between a man and a woman. It's not. It's between you, your beloved, and the State. The State is massively involved in it." And he went down a huge laundry list of basically why Family Law is a huge practice.
So I have to wonder--how many of you would be fine just exchanging vows before a Pastor/priest, instead of bringing the state and legalese and all that into your wedding? Think you could trust someone to honor their vows if they knew that family court couldn't get involved, that divorce attorneys were not a threat?
- Yes, a marriage that only involved us exchanging vows would be fine.Vote A
- No, I want the State legally involved in my wedding.Vote B
