Should we form a new type of bonding between those in love that is non-discriminant and isn't sacred?
I think they should create such so that non-religious people can come together as such.
Do you think it's weird that atheists undergo a typically religious based binding like getting married?

Marriage is not a religious institution. I really wish religion and government would both stop trying to regulate it for society as a whole. Whether each entity recognizes a marriage as valid is up to them, but I don't think a church should be responsible for overseeing the marriage of atheists. On that same token, I'd really rather not see anyone tell a church what marriages it will or won't condone.
No, I don't think it's weird for atheists to seek a marriage even if they do think it's a religious institution. It's a societal expectation to get married, and very traditional.2
