Tin, nmaking legal consent a sufficient condition for marriage, you actually are redefining marriage in an attempt to bring about your preferred outcome. Marriage has, always and everywhere (with negligible exceptions), been taken to involve a man and a woman, It has generally been taken, at least in the Western world for the last 2000 or so years, to involve consent. The pretense that consent is sufficient is as arbitrary as would be the pretense that, if a man and a woman are involved, that is sufficient and consent is not necessary.
