personally I don't think what you are suggesting and marriage are that different. The only difference between getting married and what you suggested is, in my opinion, a piece of paper.
Just a hint…
If you don’t like to reveal your real name to the world, you might want to sign the petition and thank Nayla not at the same time…
I have a good idea who is who by matching times.

Our ceremony is free. First, you have to fill out an 'intention to marry' for and you give it to the celebrant (sheikh or whatever) at least one month prior to the ceremony. You call the Sheikh and tell him 'come at 3pm'. He comes, 5 mins, you accept? Yes I do, sign here, you sign, give him a biscuit, and he leaves, or stays a bit to eat more biscuits. Then he takes the papers and does the civil registration for you.Well I don't care for the piece paper, I care more about the money spent getting this piece of paper, unless you mean that the piece of paper is the paper money used for the civil marriage, but you can also pay in plastic.
On the other hand, with civil marriage you can have children. Without one they are bastards and can't have a citizenship, that's why I want to go further than just civil marriage, give us human rights to match our biology, I want to have children out of marriage, they should be born with rights, aren't all humans equal at birth?
The article says that when people get a civil marriage in Lebanon, they are subject to civil law in personal status issues. What are some examples of how the civil law differs from the various religious laws?
Can someone explain to me why, under the proposition made by the Ministry, should a couple who gets married civilly, pay administrative costs/compensation (or however you want to call it) to the religious group of the husband? What exactly entitles a clergy to that money?
Moreover, what are the rules regarding divorce, inheritance, etc. under the civil law?
