No, it is not.
I've been married twice. It didn't take but a second.
Most recently, I got married on my lunch break from work, in my work uniform, and was back at work in plenty of time to work the second half of my shift. Ditto my husband.

You describe the marriage ceremony but ignore the expense and effort to obtain the marriage license.

Oh please, a power of attorney prepared by a high-priced attorney is not immune from challenge in court. Marital default legal authority can also be challenged in court, recall Terri Schaivo, husband intent on ending her life and parents wanting to save it?

I think it was 25 bucks. I can't remember. It might've been 30.
To me- even to me, and I'm poor- that's not much of an "expense".
And I did not ignore the "effort" involved. I just described it. It wasn't much of an effort, either.

Expense and effort? To get married? Are you out of your mind? It costs so little that I can't even remember it and the effort? There was none.

It is far more expensive and takes far more effort to get our passports renewed...

Ok gang, I confess it has been a long time since I was in need of a marriage license. The point is executing a marriage license nor a power of attorney is an arduous task. Even if the power of attorney is slightly more difficult to obtain, it isn't a justification for rewriting the definition of marriage.

No, it's not justification for it. What IS justification for it is the blatant sexual discrimination in our current marriage laws.

A power of attorney does not convey anywhere near the same rights as a marriage. Nor can any amount of legal maneuvering convey all those rights and privileges.

Your power of attorney argument is entirely specious.

The issue is not about how difficult any part of getting married is.
The issue IS ABOUT discrimination... plain and simple.

Definitions are rewritten all the time. New context is added as times change. Big deal.
