This week on West Wing an interesting topic came up - marriage. In the show it was mentioned that maybe the government should not be involved in marriage. That marriage should be left to places of worship, department stores, and Vegas. At first one might think this to be a very odd idea. However, the more I think about it the better the idea seems.
I already believed that the government should not be deciding who should be able to get married before watching the show. I believed that it was really none of their business. By eliminating it from the government control maybe they would have more time to devote to important things - like governing the country. The writers of The West Wing (or who ever came up this that idea) should be rewarded for such a simple and realistic solution.
