    Nobody seems to see the logic of it, though.  

    Lately I've been thinking a lot about marriage, and the cultural expectations that aren't totally global, and I've been thinking that there should be some kind of legal template contract for marriage (or better, civil union) that will have a cafeteria type menu that the people could select how they want to be together, and what expectations would be accepted by the couple.  

    Each marriage would be an individual unique contract signed by both parties.    Thinks like inheritance and social security benefits can be selectively conferred on the spouse, or on dependent children, or on elderly parents, or even given to a charity, or something.  

    If they want ceremonies, parties, and what not, they can do that on their own.
