Yes, yes. If the state (in this case "the state" meaning the state of FL, TX, etc) did not intervene to resolve situations in which conflict arose in marriages, but instead simply said "yall work it out", there would be chaos and insanity on a level that would amaze you libertarians. People behave very irrationally when passions are inflamed. When disputed arise about the disposition of children, you can't tell someone that they should just solve it "rationally". That has dramatically different meanings to people, esp in severe emotional states. Now, I am a limited govt freedom loving person. If you don't want to get involved in such a contract with state intervention, don't. Be free.
