The tradition of marriage first arose in the 13th century but probably had unrecognised existence even prior then. Have no interest in what an act of law has to say. It can't do a tradition justice. You want to quote it as relevant? Did I look up what you just did before I developed and then postulated my point of view? Of course not. I knew what the tradition was because it's perpetuated in all our social conditioning from birth to now 61 years of age.
