I know what I feel it should be, but for life of me right now can't come up with a single point to back up my opinion. Too much holiday baking I would imagine. So I throw it to you lovely ladies to rip the topic apart.

In Loving v Virginia the USSC said it was "One of the basic civil rights of man", I'll stick with their interpretation on this one.

I don't consider marriage civil anything. I consider it a gift from God with some pretty heavy promises made. Thinking of it as 'civil' reduces it to some kind of legal contract (in my mind) which degrades it. It makes it too easy to get out of if it is 'civil'. I got married in a church, by a preacher in front of "God and these witnesses". That makes it more than 'civil' to me.
