Marriage

Kevin Drum finds this odd line from the pastor to Nathan Hecht and Harriet Miers, a couple who've been dating on and off for decades:
"It's been great to watch — and a little puzzling sometimes," Key said. "Their relationship has been such a special one. Sometimes I think they wanted to protect how special it was by not getting married."
Perhaps they're part of the Marriage Boycott, or pursuing one of the other Alternatives to Marriage? Why is marriage something people need to be protected from now?
