I specifically referred to marriages that end and there are no children. The equation changes completely when kids are involved.

They should just chuck out the legal stuff, imho. There is no reason that people should benefit from the government for being married (social conservatism my ass). If they insist on it, then insist that you should be able to have the same benefits and legalities drawn up in any contract.
