IMHO, it's become more of an 'It's always been this way' type of thing than any sort of plan.
It’s my dream that one day the logical and reasonable people of the world will take over running things and just do what makes sense.

And that’s kinda what I was getting at. We define marriage as one man and one woman “because it’s always been that way” and have laws that apply to them “because it’s always been that way”. If we’re going to change the definition of marriage in the law because people are viewing it differently, it makes sense to me that we should also review how we treat married couples under the law.
