Marriage and the meaning of the word

"Marriage" is shorthand for a specific legal arrangement between a man and a woman, just as "corporation" or "limited partnership" is a specific legal arrangement between shareholders, business partners, etc.

 

If entrants to a legal arrangement can change the requirements for a title, or assume another title as they prefer, then that title ceases to have meaning, since there is no basis for limiting such changes/assumptions to only some preferences but not others.

 

And even if such a move is made by "society" the dilemma remains, since the title’s standard is still being changed ad hoc for the sake of an individually favored preference.
