Where does “Good Christian” fit in the many different branches of Christianity and interpretations of the bible? Sounds pretty cool that this chick can spread her legs all she wants in high school without being put to death, ignoring the literal translation where she wants, while condemning others by taking other parts literally. Stupid people make my brain hurt. Shelley and pink bitch should be burned at the stake using bundles of sticks for kindling.

You didn’t, snap. You applied for the license because you wanted the 1000+ legal benefits that come with state-recognized marriage. You were free to have a religious ceremony without the license, but then you wouldn’t get all those state-granted goodies.
For startsies…default legal power of attorney (including the right to make life-or-death decisions and visitation rights), tax-free inheritance of joint property (and in some cases individual property), automatic joint custody of children natural or adopted, and survivor benefits for Social Security, pensions, veteran’s and other benefits.
Beyond that, the right to claim the other as a dependent in cases of disability, or be included in family health plans from employers. FMLA to care for the other. Even spousal privilege in criminal or civil cases.
I’m not denying the marriage penalty exists. I am cohabiting because it does. But (a) that arrangement is a LOT more complicated than what we would get from a cheap-o marriage license and (b) it’s only an issue because we make, jointly, quite a bit of money. Over half the people I know do BETTER under our tax system being married (and many more are willing to give up a couple hundred dollars a year to have the security that the other benefits provide). We’re pretty unique snowflakes in getting together later on and owning a whole bunch of stuff and being established to the point that legal marriage didn’t make *financial* sense over the money we’ve paid lawyers to get the equivalent in contracts.
Even my gay co-worker, whose household income is more than ours, ran straight down to the courthouse to make it official the second he was able to because they felt the license was less burdensome than what we’ve gone through to get the “equivalent” (which could still be challenged, possibly successfully, in court by a blood relative).
