The U.S. government should abolish its sanctioning of marriage, argued Cass Sunstein, President Obama's regulatory czar.

Sunstein proposed that the concept of marriage should become privatized, with the state only granting civil union contracts to couples wishing to enter into an agreement.

Sunstein explained marriage licensing is unnecessary, pointing out people stay committed to organizations like country clubs and homeowner associations without any government interference.

"Under our proposal, the word marriage would no longer appear in any laws
, and marriage licenses would no longer be offered or recognized by any level of government," wrote Sunstein and co-author Richard Thaler in their 2008 book, "Nudge: Improving decisions about health, wealth and happiness."

In the book obtained and reviewed by WND Sunstein explains his approach would ensure that "the only legal status states would confer on couples would be a civil union, which would be a domestic partnership agreement between any two people."

The government should get out of the marriage business, but it shouldn't get into the civil union business to replace it.

The overview of the book at Amazon looks somewhat interesting.


The book is more about how people make decisions (and how they can be influenced to make "better" ones) than it is about recommending government policy. This was published in 2008; Megi makes it sound like Sunstein has made this as an official recommendation in his current job. I see no evidence that he has done so.
