Would this be consistent with sharia law? C hanging our law to accommodate an alternative system is what I would consider to be a change in culture that is unacceptable.
If it's all civil contract then it would be no different than what Jews and Mormons (two examples off the top of my head) do already.

I believe that our society is better than some others. I think that it is ok to say that. I think that it is necessary to say that actually.
