Why is government involved in marriage in the first place?

What once was a religious ceremony to sanctify the union - under complete discretion of the church - of two people has become a legal framework to grant privileges, extort individuals upon divorce, rip apart families, keep a steady cash/work flow to lawyers, judges, state appointed councilors, police, et al.

Seems like a better place to start if you're concerned with the biblical tradition of marriage being subverted.
