      thus, when they voided the well defined concept of common-law marriage.

      Now the states constitution allows only discriminatory contracts that limit who a man or women can marry.

      The church interjected itself into it. The state, whether that would be a modern democratically elected government a monarchy, or a tribal chieftain, has been involved with marriage from the get go.
