    good point.

    i grew up watching my dad get divorced 3x, so i'm not 100% sold on the necessity of the ritual. you can be soulmates for life without the certificate.

    and I always found formal weddings to be a pretentious contrivance, driven mostly by the hoarde of wedding/industrial complex vendors eager to cash in.

    I realise the concept of gay marriage is in it's infancy but I hope we don't just co-opt the str8 wedding template with the only difference being two grooms on top of the cake. I know we fought for equality but it feels like there should be some tradition developed that is unique to two men pledging their lives to each other.

    maybe on your planet, but not here.

    if i got married today to someone with roughly equivalent income, in the US we as a couple would pay more net taxes filing jointly than we would as single filers.
