Or... if you are not going to legalize gay marriage...

I've come to an alternative plan.

Why don't we just decertify marriage from being a "legal arrangement" entirely, and relegate it to the "religious ceremony" that it was actually intended to be? Instead, let us define all rights, privileges, and protections in society around the construct of "civil union" and then everyone is treated equally throughout the nation.

And we can leave it to the churches, synagogues, and mosques to decide whether their respective gods would smile or frown upon any particular union.
