If you are really interested in moving away from the God-forsaken sectarian system then this is not just small step but a necessary step. When your government treats you not as a citizen but as a sect member that visibly makes things worse. In addition to the fact that it shoves a religion down your throat and forces you to submit to a religious court.Many people on here seem to think that Lebanon's problems will be solved by sectarian marriage.
How are we going to get a civil state when we still vote based on our sects and worship our leaders?
Having civil marriage won't turn us into non-sectarian people. It's not even due to religiosity, Lebanese don't care much about their religions (they curse God when they get angry), sects are more like tribes.
And let's not get into minority rights for the small amount of people who actually want a civil marriage, because in our God forsaken country minorities are just seen as slaves of the majority, haydeh esset minority rights in the country of minorities la2tinah men tiza.
