OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Republicans are promoting a bill that could make marriage a private institution in their state. The legislation, filed by Rep. Mike Turner, could end all government regulation of marriage and leave the matter to individuals and their churches. The ACLU has called this attempt the first of its kind in the US.
Finally, someone gets it. Maybe there is hope for marriage yet and it won’t be relegated forever to the butt of jokes and the nightmare of alimony, paternity fraud, and exorbitant child support payments for men that it has become. I really hope they pass this and it catches on in other states.
