Is there any real reason why government needs to be involved in marriage?


There is no constitutional right to marriage based on the constitution. Marriage until recently was the domain of the states and they set the requirement for licensing marriage. Then the federal government took over and told the states to do as they were told. The federal government is responsible for any problems arising out of marriage, as they are the ones that used marriage to discriminate in their income tax, and giving benefits that don't exist outside of marriage. The feds are the one that demand status, color, marital, gender etc. Marriage doesn't resolve the issues of discrimination,

    Basically you didn't answer the question, and the 14th amendment didn't give black men, or women the right to vote, and voting is part of the constitution. The SC didn't resolve any issues, it just decided a legal question.

    The FDA, and FICA have failed us many times. The FDA has not really protected the people, and they have no test facilities they just review documentation. The Feds didn't protect us from 2008. But the ? is why do we need govt involvement for marriage

    Again, the SC doesn't resolve anything they just make a legal decision. Abortion is still not resolved. And the 14 amendment didn't give black men,or women the right to vote. It is the legislature that it tasked with making the laws, not the SC.
