I agree with everything you've said here (alexmc).

Something interesting I found out at the weekend. Quakers have no ministers or clergy - any member of the congregation is welcome to lead the service if they feel moved or called upon by God to do so. As a result, in the Quaker marriage ceremony, the couple marry themselves.

I like the idea of you declaring yourselves married a lot better than the idea of an external person declaring you married.
