This seems to be the thing to do today

How I think marriage should be:

• Between any two single, consenting adults.

• The state can't tell churches who they must marry.

• Churches can't tell the state whose marriages it can recognize.

• Churches need not be involved in marriages if couples so choose.

• The government, however, must register marriages to address any legal issues that may arise.

• The government does not interfere with a partnership, except where legal issues and/or immediate endangerment arise.

• All states should honor all legal marriages, because rights shouldn't stop at state borders.

• Divorce should not require unfair burden of proof.

I realize that complex legalities lie in between these lines. But these should be the only lines they have to lie between.
