As the same-sex marriage debate rages in conservative states, Alabama is getting closer to its own solution: stop issuing marriage licenses altogether.
A bill moving through the legislature would do just that, AL.com reports. It wouldn’t force Alabamians to “live in sin,” but rather would allow them to declare themselves married without having to get the approval of county officials.
Instead of issuing marriage licenses, couples would simply fill out marriage contracts – be they same-sex or opposite sex – that probate judges in the state would then file in the state’s official records.
Heck yes! I can get behind that 100%!
