In an effort to resolve the issue in advance of a potential future in which same-sex marriages may be declared legal once again, Senate Bill 377 would remove the requirement that couples obtain a license from a probate judge and replace it instead with a contract process requiring only a signature by a notary public, clergy member, or attorney. The bill would only allow two adult parties to join in marriage and would prohibit currently-married people from marrying a second time.

What I do have a problem with is people forcing others to abide by their beliefs and violating their rights, just so they can maintain their own.......
This fixes that issue, If the gov really wanted equality, they would mandate something like this!

Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. Next best thing is to ban any and every expression of religious ideas to stick it to the Satanic Temple or what have you in Alabama. Somehow I doubt the state has the cojones.

Here's a idea. make it so when people get a divorce both parties have to pay a severe fine. i'd bet the divorce rate would drop.
