Yup. There's no rational

Yup. There's no rational basis to treat married people any differently, unless we think that marriage is good for the fabric of society and want to encourage faithful monogamous couple and/or families. And if we want to encourage healthy families, then there is a rational basis for defining marriage as being between a man and a woman, the only combination that can have children. So I can arrive at either endpoint... special treatment for only man and woman, or no special treatment at all. The latter, I suppose, would be the more libertarian approach.
