    At least, not to most libertarians (I am not one, btw).  Most either support marriage equality (good) or want to replace all marriages with a private contract system (insane).  I don't think this is an area where libertarians are particularly the enemy.  

    As far as why unmarried couples are excluded...the government has a rational interest in promoting stable two-partner relationships.  Actually, it is kind of funny, because your question gets at the root of the extreme libertarian critique: the government has no basis for preferring heterosexual or homosexual couples to singles or groups.
