It works like that in some states, it varies by state, the rules are made by the elected representatives of the people. As long as those rules don't violate the constitution they stand.That really floored me that you actually said that. It really does. For starters, why do you Tristan of all people support a system that requires a "license" to be married. Fine, you want to have a "legally recognized" marriage for tax purposes etc. etc. I get that. Again, why do you support a system of government issued licenses? Tell me why cant consenting adults go to the circuit clerk or whatever the authority is in your state, sign a piece of paper in front of them that says we are married and hand it to them for them to file? There is absolutely no excuse for that to NOT be how the system works. None, nadda, zilch.
If you don't like the rules, contact your representative, work to get like minded people elected.
