marriage under attack...again

A simple bill to discontinue recognizing common law marriage is being filibustered by Sen. Rankin (R-Horry). A common law marriage is when the state recognizes a marriage when 2 people are "shacking up" for a certain period of time. I really don't understand. Last year we voted almost unanimously to define marriage between 1 man and 1 woman. Now we are second guessing God's most sacred institution. On a related issue, below is a draft of the bumper sticker that will be used to help gain support for the marriage amendment that you will be able to vote on in November. The SC Constitution will define marriage and voter approval is required. Do ya'll like the design?
