but the deep-down simplistic idealistic parts of me feel that people should be able to put themselves forward as married and have that respected.

Which I tend to generally agree with, but I guess I'm not getting why it's such a big deal, if two people consider themselves married, to go down to the courthouse and file the appropriate papers.  Don't have to make a big occasion of it, but if you're functioning as a married couple and consider yourselves to be married, and you're legally eligible to be married to each other, I'm not understanding why the objection to putting it in writing.

Then again, I have no experience with the "just file the papers and don't make an occasion of it" way of getting married, so I'm also not familiar with what issues and potential problems might be inherent in that process.  Maybe there are factors I'm just not taking into consideration?
