I'm wondering about those 1400 "rights", I bet most are the use of government force where none is needed.

You really think people are going to be in favor of having to go through the all the legal hoops and expenses to accomplish all of the same things that a simple marriage license handles?

You give society a lot more credit than I do, if so.
