Yes the word marriage has nowadays become such a norm that its origins are misplaced only to be mainstreamed by governments. It is technically not even the right of the government to issue marriage certificates but when they do it is still under religious pretext. It has become this way because the government recognizes the religious relevance of such a union. Marriage in the bible was performed by clergy or "Those having authority from God". Does our government have authority from God? Sure hope not, but they obviously choose to recognize his authority as stated on our dollars bills "In God We Trust"
So here we are trying to interpret what marriage is and how it should be viewed when it is not our governments, ours, the founding fathers, or anyone else's responsibility to change its meaning. The bible states it very clearly, which to date is one of the oldest books we have. I say lets just leave the definition alone and give these couples the same government benefits married couples enjoy. But leave the religious terminology to its originators and call it something else.
