The problem is that "marriage" is not only about sexual relationships - it is about property rights, income tax rates, medical rights, immigration rights, etc etc etc.
The issue of child care is covered by adoptive regulations and is not related to sexual relations either.
Now I would be perfectly happy to have marriage restricted to being only about sexual relationships and everything else being due to social unions or alliances.
So lets divide the issue - sex = some union some people can call marriage if they want to
Everything else is a legal union of two (or more) people. The legal part is what defines which laws are applicable -- not the sex.
