To streamline society and liberate the mind.
Marriage is outdated and irrelevant, a bizarre and restrictive body of red tape. Of no value except to keep bean counters and form sifters in a job, ticking boxes or adjusting payments on the basis of who has signed a bit of paper with who. This is 2010 not 1010, let's grow up. I propose each individual be given the right to nominate one person as the non-taxed recipient of their worldy gods or pension in lieu of a spouse. It could be your brother, sister, daughter, lover or friend.
