Yes! Let marriage be marriage according to one's own traditions; let legally binding relationships be legally binding relationships according to, surprise, the law of the land.

It's one giant let statement, so when someone asks if x+y+z=marriage, the answer can come from whichever morality to which one might subscribe. When the question is more "will x+y+z=a union recognised and legitimised by our government, so I have the same rights formerly restricted to monogamous heterosexual couples", the answer will come from legislation passed to ensure those rights have been extended to all.

And it had better pass. *thumps her newspaper into her palm*
