I agree M.G. that Dr. Paul's stance on marriage is better...

...than Gary Johnson's.

Get the government OUT of the marriage business altogether and quit trying to influence social behavior with tax codes.

I know the federal government wants to reward people for producing more little tax-payers, but that is not a proper role of government.

Then they punish those who either can't or choose not to procreate which is unfair.

All advantages for married people should be abolished.

Marriages (or other civil unions) should be only between the parties involved and the organizations (of their choice) who preside over and sanction their marriages.

Any subsequent legal issues within the marriage or union should be handled by courts of law.

Even local government should be OUT of it.

No permits, licenses or any other permission by any level of government should be required.
